Synopsis

Ugly, stingy old Sganarelle wants to marry his ward, pretty young Isabelle, but she loves handsome Valere. So the young ones flirt behind the old one's back and make a fool of him. Sganarelle is an unpleasant old man who thinks parents and guardians should be stern, keeping young people locked up and closely guarded. His brother, Ariste, believes in giving young people freedom. Sganarelle is so old that he wobbles. Nevertheless, he plans to marry the beautiful Isabelle, who is so young that she has never been kissed. Isabelle is horrified at the idea of being wed to this repulsive creature. Her heart quivers for the handsome young Valere, but how do you let a man know you're interested in him when an old goat like Sganarelle keeps a suspicious eye on you every second? Isabelle may be young, but she's not dumb. The tricks she dreams up to get messages to Valere make one of the cleverest plots in theatre history.
