The stuffy Elomire and the foppish Valere struggle for power in a royal court-sponsored theater troupe in the hit comedy La Bête. Arden favorite Scott Greer, one of Philadelphia's most gifted comedic actors, plays the starring role in this revival and award-winning director Emmanuelle Delpech takes the helm. A modern comedy written in iambic pentameter, the plot was inspired by real-life 17th-century French playwright and actor Molière. Playwright David Hirson's 1991 comedy has enjoyed runs on Broadway and in London's West End. Learn More

I believe this is a true depiction of of what most likely did happened, after the civil war. Where slaves and slave holders had to deal with the truth of what the so called masters lives were really about and the damage that was done to human beings, that were bought and placed into slavery for another persons profit and luxury.
