Newly translated and adapted by UMKC professor Dr. Felicia Londré as part of the city-wide celebration, “KC MOlière: 400 in 2022,” THE PESTS follows the hilarious travails of a French nobleman desperately trying—in the face of continuous interruption—to be on time for a rendezvous with the object of his affection. When we performed this delightful story last March as a virtual reading, the enthusiastic audience response persuaded our Artistic Committee to mount a full and lively production!
