Penniless Eraste is in love with the fair Isabelle but her mother, Madame Argante, will only permit the marriage if Eraste can show he will inherit the estate of his miserly and rich Uncle Geronte.

Unfortunately for Eraste, old Geronte has also fallen for the fair Isabelle, and plans to marry her and leave everything he owns to her-- squashing the young love forever.

Impersonating the old man, as well two brash, disinherited relatives, Eraste's wily servant Crispin dictates a will favorable to his master (and himself, of course), only to find that even the best laid plans come undone!

David Ives’ adaptation is rich with flowing French couplets and this joyful farce has everything working out in the end.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
