Event Description:

Don Juan by Molière is coming to the Black Box Theater in April 2018! 

Don Juan is a tragicomedy written by the famous French playwright and actor Molière, and performed in five acts in 1665. Based on the legend of Don Juan, the play follows the actions of a libertine in Sicily. Don Juan is a wealthy nobleman who romances ever pretty young woman he meets regardless of their status and despite moral values. He offers them marriage, even going so far as to marry a different woman every month. Moliere’s play shows Don Juan as a rationalist atheist who values the power of reason and dismiss the fear linked to religious faith. After fifteen performances the play was withdrawn from the stage and published in its full version only after the French Revolution, in 1813.

The cast and crew will represent John Jay’s community of undergraduates & graduate studies as well as faculty from the Department of Communication & Theatre Arts. 

Topics for discussion may include sexuality, atheism and faith, cultural mores, rationalism & "The Lumières" revolutionary movement in Europe, as well as the motif of “God justice versus men justice” and "immorality", a prevalent element in the way Molière’s audience received the plays. 

Contact the Communication & Theatre Arts Department to reserve seats.
