School for Wives applauded

This year’s Thomason House Play, "The School for Wives", was ably directed by James Kazi.

Arnolphe is a narrow minded and supercillious merchant who hopes to marry Agnes whom he has sequestered away in a nunnery for most of her life with the sole intention of marrying her when she comes of age. However, he fails to realise that she does not have eyes for him. Arnolphe brings all his guile and decit to the fore in order to preserve Agnes for himself. It can only result in humiliation! This production updated events to the 1920s and showed just how some ridiculous male attitudes towards women might still prevail.
