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
“We’re thrilled to premiere another Boston playwright this year,” said Artistic Director James Peter Sotis. “After our enormous success with last year’s premiere of Bea Wissel’s IRNEnominated Burning the Barn, we are delighted to showcase a new local playwright again this summer. We first recognized Zach’s creativity when he performed as Mairtin Hanlon in VTG’s 2009 production of Martin McDonagh’s A Skull in Connemara and we’re glad to have helped him develop this play. His sharp focus on wit and wordplay really highlights the plays themes of honor, trust, and communication.”
