The greedy and domineering Gorgibus is forcing his daughter

Célie to marry the wealthy Valère, but she is in love with Lélie and

he with her. Célie, in distress at her impending marriage to Valère,

faints in the street, and Sganarelle, who is passing by, attempts to

revive her. In the process she loses her miniature portrait of Lélie

which ends up in the hands of Sganarelle and his wife. These two

events set off a series of mistaken assumptions and quarrelling:

Sganarelle’s wife believes that he and Célie are lovers; Sganarelle

believes that Lélie and his wife are lovers; Célie believes that

Lélie and Sganarelle’s wife are lovers; and Lélie believes that

Célie has secretly married Sganarelle. A model Molière farce

of misunderstanding and mistaken identity, that grows more

tangled with every passing scene!
