Play Notes

× A contemporary twist on Molière’s hilarious farce about star-crossed lovers and parental objection. PTC has produced Scapin before but not like this! Set in vibrant 1960s Naples, Italy, PTC “flips the script” and brings living "La Dolce Vita" to life. The trouble-making servant Scapin assists the very chic and very meddling mothers of Octave and Léander in their quest to see their sons married — well-married. This contemporary take on a classic plays matriarch against suppressed sons and offers the floor to the rogue Scapin, whose verbal dexterity and gift-of-the-gab will ensure trouble.
