Artistic collaboration of Miguel Pereira in

L'Impromptu de Versailles by Molière

by Miguel Loureiro, 2016

Strange animals to guide are the actors.

Eight days. To write and stage a play for the King in just eight days. This is the challenge Molière made to his troupe of actors. This is the challenge we see unfolding in The Impromptu of Versailles where, to everyone’s disbelief, Molière appears as playwright and actor of himself.

A show that is a rehearsal for the great show. Anxiety and expectation. Debate and uncertainty. Will it happen? An authentic celebration of the theatrical act. A fiction without fictional postulates. This is a brilliant comedy about theatre itself taken by Miguel Loureiro to the stage of D. Maria II, in the celebration of its 170thanniversary.
