Actors, Black Version
actor

Short adaptation by Luc Boulanger of an original play of Molière, "The Bourgeois Gentleman, " directed by Véronique Dumais. Presented by the troupe "Feet on Stage "from the École secondaire Jean-de-Brebeuf, in Limoilou, January 14, 2011. The story recounts the misadventures of a rich bourgeois who wants to become a gentleman, so to be noble. He seeks to marry his daughter to a noble man … The actors have presented two versions, one "white", following a classical staging and a "black" one very surprising and fun! The texts are the same in both versions, but the setting is totally different. I wish it would have last longer.
