“Moliere than Thou” to be presented at Penn State Fayette

3/10/2011 —

Actor, author and director Tim Mooney, will provide audiences a comedic and educational look into the work of playwright Moliere during his presentation of “Moliere Than Thou.” This free event is open to the public and will be held Thursday, March 17, at noon at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus in the Maggie Hardy Magerko Auditorium.

“With 13 Moliere plays in my portfolio, I realized that I had been writing material faster than theaters could produce it, and that the best way to introduce this work to the world would be to create a play in which some of Moliere’s funniest speeches could be explored,” said Mooney.

The performance centers on Moliere, who is left without a cast of performers due to food poisoning. Instead of refunding the theatre patrons’ money, he decides to perform a “greatest hits” show. He highlights some of his favorite speeches from “Tartuffe”, “Don Juan”, “The Doctor in Spite of Himself”, “The Precious Young Maidens”, “The Misanthrope” and “The School for Wives.”

Mooney has presented “Moliere than Thou” to high school, college, festival and conference audiences throughout the country.
