It's just a typical day for poor Sganarelle. His wife Marguerite thinks he's having an affair with sweet young Celie, who fainted in front of his house. But it was only because her father refuses to let her marry stalwart young Lelie, the man she really loves. Meanwhile, Lelie also thinks Sganarelle is having an affair with Celie because he caught him with a portrait meant for her as a sign of his undying devotion. When Sganarelle and Celie catch Lelie and Marguerite together things really get complicated! This delicious aperitif works perfectly as a curtain raiser before a full length play or as a competition piece.
Sganarelle was first performed on March 19, 1994 by the Bookline Community Theatre in Brookline, MA and was directed by David Frieze.
