Grab a seat on love's merry-go-round as Moliere's rarely performed gem Lovers' Quarrels makes its way to the Boston Center for the Arts. Translated into English verse by Pulitzer Prize-winner Richard Wilbur, this play tells of a young woman named Ascagne, who, for the sake of a family inheritance, has been forced to spend her life disguised as a man. But after she falls in love with the rejected suitor in pursuit of her sister, Ascagne will begin an adventurous masquerade filled with witty comic mix-ups and jealous rivalries. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
_"My Wonderful Day is one of the wittiest and most pristinely crafted of Mr. Ayckbourn’s dark farces."—_Wall Street Journal
“My Wonderful Day finds Ayckbourn in top form—and breaking new ground.”—The Telegraph
Nine-year-old Winnie is off sick from school for the day, but has an essay to write about “My Wonderful Day.” What better opportunity than quietly seated unnoticed in a corner, while her pregnant mother busies herself cleaning the home of a British television celebrity? When her Mother goes into labor, Winnie’s left in the house alone with the celebrity, his mistress, his wife and his best friend, discovering a wealth of material for her essay. The bizarre and increasingly frenetic comings and goings of adults in the weird household where she’s a silent observer fuels an essay that shocks her mother, but provides endless entertainment for the audience along the way.
