The brazenly-conniving servant Scapin is the most devious and audacious character you'll ever encounter. Two young men, Octave and Leandre, enlist his help to save them after they pledge marriage to women their fathers wouldn't approve of. Improvising his way through treacherous turns and outrageous misbehavior, Scapin manages to help the two men and their brides, even managing to exact a personal revenge in the process. But when Scapin is caught in the middle of a trick and abandoned by his cohorts, will his scheming be enough to get him out of trouble unscathed? (A short version of this play is also available.)
