Our next play

 

“Don Juan” or “The Feast with the Statue”, by Molière.

 

 Synopsis

 

Don Juan is an incurable seducer of women. Elvira is his most recent conquest and her brother swears revenge. But Don Juan inadvertently saves her brother’s life and he has to forgive Don Juan.

 

Don Juan comes across the tomb of the Commandant that he killed. He jokingly tells his servant Sganarelle to invite the statue to dinner, and is surprised when the statue actually nods its acceptance. Even more frightening for Sganarelle, the statue actually does appear at dinner time! The servant attributes the incident to Heaven's wrath. Don Juan insincerely pretends to become religious - and his fate is sealed as he is swallowed up by hell.

 

A recent updated version by Patrick Marber (Don Juan in Soho) is currently being produced in Basel by Happyville Productions (www.happyville.ch).

 

The Play Reading will be introduced and led by Michael Clarke.
