Drama/Comedy. By Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt. Translated by Jeremy Sams.
Cast: 2m., 5w. "That mythic rake, the prince of love 'em and leave 'em, is called to task for the female hearts he broke and the emotional scars he left behind. Five of his former conquests corner Don Juan in a French provincial chateau and present him with an ultimatum. He must either marry his most recent victim, a beautiful 20-year-old girl, remaining faithful to her and making her happy, or he will be tossed into the Bastille...The opportunity to take the offensive against this most offensive of men has a liberating effect on these 18th century women...The interplay among the women and their former seducer is fascinating to see and entertaining to hear...Crackling dialogue." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) One int. set.
