Careers and love lives alike are on the line when Moliere's theater company bombs their debut performance in Paris. Desperate to impress King Louis XIV, the company stages a spontaneous production of Moliere's farce The Love Doctor. The show is a smash hit, but when Moliere announces his betrothal to the younger sister of his former mistress, Madeliene Bejart, turmoil ensues. The next night, onstage high jinks merge with backstage drama when the troupe performs The Forced Marriage, and Moliere must deal with the demands of the King as he realizes that his fiancee may not be quite what she seems.
(The Love Doctor and The Forced Marriage can also be performed separately.)
