The Ouachita Baptist University Department of Theatre Arts will present the fall play The Learned Ladies on Nov. 3-5 and 7-8 at 7:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6.
The French comedy, written by Molière, is a satire on academic pretention, female education and precociousness. Written in the late 17th century, The Learned Ladies originally was written in French and later translated into English. The OBU production will feature a translation by Richard Wilbur. The play follows the story of two young lovers who must overcome the conflicting views of the young girl’s parents in order to be married.
