The Tricks of Scapin is a superb adaptation for one-act play contests, classroom study and mini-productions. It is one of Molière's most appealing comedies, filled with comic tricks of that rascal character Scapin, farcical complications of mistaken identity, and slapstick elements of commedia dell'arte. This short adaptation features brisk dialogue, short scenes and mounting climaxes that retain the joyous spirit of this French classic. The part of Scapin is an actor's dream, originally played by Molière himself.
