From the inn to the royal court to the cemetery
On February 17, 1673, Molière suffers a hemorrhage while playing the "Conceived Sick". What passes at the moment of death of the greatest theatrical creator of his time? 350 years later, Antú Romero Nunes recreates the last long seconds of Molière's life as a fatal revue. The Chilean playwright Nona Fernández writes a play for the Basel company that takes as its starting point the archetypes from Molière's life and comedies: The masters - stingy, sick and horny. The servants - clever, busy and exploited. The ups and downs of an acting troupe between intrigues and successes, adaptation and refusal, triumph and defeat.
