Synopsis:

In 1657, playwright/actor Molière, having been given a theater in the capital by the King, is back in Paris after touring the kingdom of France with his company of players. One day, a young lady asks him to follow her to the deathbed of her mother… Thirteen years earlier, Molière already runs a troupe. When the wealthy Jourdain offers to cover that debt so that Molière’s theatrical talents might help Jourdain win the heart of a certain widowed marquise, hilarity ensues. Disguised as a priest Molière becomes a guest in Jourdain’s palace on the subtext of teaching Jourdain the craft of the stage, which annoys Jourdain’s wife, Elmire. But, soon after, the confrontation between Elmire and Molière turns seductive. Too busy to notice, Jourdain enlists the aid of a well-connected and scheming acquaintance to help him pursue the widowed marquise.
