Inside Molière's thought provoking comedy, stands a dysfunctional family questioning the concept of "what it is to be a woman", what is her place in society / the family / the world.|
The women in this house are wearing the pants and are hoping to break free.
The men around them are spinning on shaky grounds.
But all are equally foolish in their touching humanity.
Inside this theatrical puzzle, kitsch Sci-Fi meets Versailles glam rock.
Quest for true love and intellectual aspirations are moving targets.
Feminism will be on the rise.
Gender-bending will be bold.
Music will drive the hearts and minds.
Thoughts will become weapons.
The mind : the final frontier.
The heart : the final frontier.
And even to this day, a woman with a book is a dangerous thing
