Moliere's Bourgeois Gentleman with his customery wit and incisiveness, France's most gifted playwright assesses the importance of the arts through the eyes of a "culture vulture". Moliere uses Monsieur Jourdain's attempts to educate himself to expose a world of bourgeois pretension and human greed. ATC's talented cast give full rein to their comic skills to create, from this marvellous "comedy-ballet", a stunning carnival of theatre, dance and music. A brand new production, stamped with all the vitality and imagination that are ATC's hallmark.
