The Rehearsal

A group of actors under the dubious directorship of up-and-coming star director are working on a drastic reimagining of Moliere’s meta masterpiece The Rehearsal at Versailles. The technicians are not impressed, the French accents are over the top (but clearly necessary) and the clock is ticking because Bob, the high profile producer, is going to pop in to see how things are going.

The Rehearsal premiered in 2006 as part of The Rebel Alliance’s production, A Night of French Mayhem—a double bill consisting of Two Precious Maidens Ridiculed and The Rehearsal.

Anders Falstie-Jensen’s reimagining of Moliere’s classic becomes a comedy with an edge about theatre and group dynamics.
