About the play: Dom Juan, Molière
The story follows Dom Juan, a libertine, a seducer of women and an atheist. He is accompanied throughout the play by his valet, Sgnanarelle, an aggressive, cowardly and greedy individual. Dom Juan’s multi-faceted personality and womanising ways are exposed throughout the play. Will Dom Juan seize the opportunity for reformation or will he be punished?

L’histoire suit Dom Juan, un séducteur et athée. Il est accompagné tout du long par son valet Sganarelle, un homme agressif, lâche et avare. Sa personnalité à multiples facettes et ses habitudes de coureur de jupons sont révélées au grand jour tout au long de la pièce. Dom Juan va-t-il choisir de se reconvertir ou sera-t-il châtié?
