GEDS - The School For Wives

Mid Morning Mix // Events// Entertainment// Art & Culture // Nov. 20, 2017

GEDS Director Catherine Harari and Actor Charles Slovenksi join us in the studio on the Mid Morning Mix.


The Geneva English Drama Society (GEDS)'s latest show is a biting comedy of errors where hapless Arnolphe is undone by his own double dealing and double standards.

Arnolphe, a pompous middle-aged man, has his future all mapped out and will take advice from no-one. He has raised his young ward, Agnès, in a nunnery so that she will remain innocent and ignorant and thus be the “perfect” wife for him. Now she is 17 and he moves her to a house on his estate in preparation for the wedding. But Agnès has other ideas…

Written by Molière and first performed in 1662, this GEDS performance will be a modernised, witty interpretation of the 17th century classic.
