A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Welcome to A Doctor in Spite of Himself—and get ready for some serious silliness! I can’t think of a better way to wrap up 2011 at Yale Rep than with a little lot of laughter, nor a more qualified ringleader for the three ring circus of Molière’s uproarious satire than director Christopher Bayes. He and Steven Epp, whose last collaboration at our theatre was 2010’s delightful The Servant of Two Masters, have created an outrageous adaptation that is bursting with music and good-natured naughtiness. Being funny is hard work, but you’d never know it watching this remarkable ensemble of artists. This is a testament not only to the virtuosic skills of the individual performers, each an extraordinarily talented physical comedian, but also to the joyous sense of community that Chris Bayes builds during the weeks of rehearsal. After the run here in New Haven, the company will pack up and head west to begin performances at Berkeley Rep in February. Then in spring, Chris and Steve will re-mount the Yale Rep production of The Servant of Two Masters at The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, DC. Back here in New Haven, 2012 will offer many pleasures and surprises for adventurous audiences. Acclaimed director Tina Landau (Broadway’s Superior Donuts) will stage the world premiere of Christina Anderson’s Good Goods, while Resident Director Liz Diamond brings to life The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare’s tale of blinding jealousy and forgiveness. And Pulitzer Prize finalist Will Eno will make his Yale Rep debut alongside Sam Gold, who will direct the world premiere of The Realistic Joneses. I hope you’ll join us again soon. In fact, it’s not too late to subscribe to Yale Rep this season. You can even apply the cost of today’s admission to one of our convenient and affordable ticket packages, which start at less than $35 per show—and at $10 for students! Thank you for being here with us for this performance, especially during such a busy time of year. I hope you will help us spread the good word about the show to your friends and family who may also enjoy a couple of hours of laughter and good cheer! And please feel free to email me directly about this production (james.bundy@yale.edu); it is always a pleasure to hear from you. I look forward to seeing you again in 2012! Sincerely,

James Bundy Artistic Director

Monsieur de Molière: A Life So Theatrical! A Wit Quite Fantastical! The quintessential Parisian, Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, who later invented for himself the moniker Molière, was born in 1622, the son of a Royal Court upholsterer. To cheer him up after the death of his mother, Poquelin’s grandfather introduced him to the performing arts at age ten; a fiery passion for the theatre ignited in the boy’s heart, and from that moment his constant desire was to enchant audiences with his acting. He received an education in philosophy and law at the Collège de Clermont but eschewed the inheritance of his father’s title to found the Théâtre Illustre with his lover-collaborator, the actress Madeleine Béjart. The venture flopped disastrously, and the backlash Molière suffered for his poor skills as a tragedian struck him like a kick in the teeth. The troupe hit the road and played in the French provinces for twelve years, where their fortunes went from vagrancy to celebrity upon the inclusion of Molière’s first comedies in the repertory. They returned to Paris,


Monsieur de Molière having secured a post as the official comedians of the King’s brother the Duc d’Orléans, where they quickly astonished King Louis XIV with their hilarious antics and biting satire. As Molière’s abilities as an entertainer blossomed, so did his talent for sparking scandal. Virtually every opening night incited outrage, most notably The Affected Young Ladies (Les Précieuses ridicules), The School for Wives (L’École des femmes), Dom Juan (Don Juan), and Tartuffe (Le Tartuffe); the latter play, a savage ridicule of hypocrisy which was perceived as a derisive comment on religious fervor, nearly led the playwright to the chopping block. Molière’s company performed tirelessly in the Palais Royal, gaining an unparalleled reputation for mocking social convention and the falsehood of so-called “learned men.” In 1673 Molière presented The Imaginary Invalid (La Malade imaginaire) and collapsed on stage during the fourth performance. He died later that night. In the seventeenth century, professional acting was synonymous with sinning for a salary; as such, Molière was refused a Christian burial. The loss of Molière left the French theatre scene in turmoil, leading the King to dictate a merger of the three official acting companies, a union which initiated the world’s first national theatre, the Comédie-Française.


In his 1900 treatise Laughter, French philosopher Henri Bergson writes that comedy “does not exist outside of what is strictly human,” concluding that “by laughter, society avenges itself for the liberties taken with it.” Few dramatists have been so consumed by this idea as Molière, whose passion for the theatre—and his certainty in its power to illuminate human inanity—propelled him to risk not just his inheritance and social status, but his very life, for the liberty of his art and the elicitation of our laughter.

—BENJAMIN FAINSTEIN, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG

MARIONETTES FROM A COLLECTION AT CIVICA SCUOLA D’ARTE DRAMMATICA, MILAN, 1840–1930.


Of Troupes and Tropes: Molière, the Ita The emergence of commedia dell’arte in the mid-sixteenth century marked the birth of professional acting. Troupes of nomadic performers proliferated across Italy before migrating to Paris some seventy years later at the behest of Cardinal Richelieu. The commedia style is comprised of familiar stock character types and comedic scenarios, combining improvisatory dialogue and gleeful bits of physical comedy known as lazzi. The plots usually revolve around a pair of witty, but naïve, barefaced young lovers (Innamorati), whose affections are constantly endangered by the harebrained escapades of their masked counterparts, among them arrogant generals (Capitano), pedantic merchants (Pantalone), capricious clowns (Arlequino), and grotesque doctors (Dottore). Molière delighted in these whimsical farces, which often featured pastoral settings and intrigues resulting from concealed identities, and he even trained with the Italian comedian Tiberio Fiorilli, the man who won fame for playing

14

Scaramouche. He drew inspiration from the Italian practice, but in adapting it for his own meticulously scripted verse, he shifted the locations indoors to drawing rooms, thereby increasing the topical bent of the humor and forcing French sophisticates to observe their own folly on stage. Furthermore, he reveled in commedia’s vulgarity but granted a greater dimensionality to the stock characters. Molière employed his wit to propel plot and character development in addition to displaying the virtuosity of his ensemble, thereby importing the scrappy spontaneity of commedia into a literary form. A Doctor in Spite of Himself (Le Médecin malgré lui) was composed hurriedly in 1666 to serve as theatrical triage for the tepid commercial response to The Misanthrope. It was common for Molière to devise and refurbish his plots from fables and other plays (occasioning constant charges of plagiarism), and the wildly successful Doctor was derived from a mishmash of sources in addition to the recognizable commedia


alians, and A Doctor in Spite of Himself scenarios. Molière evidently culled from the medieval French fabliau The Ugly Sight (Le Vilain mire), which relates the story of a woodsman who masquerades as a doctor; a tale by Rabelais about a cunning wife who feigns the loss of speech to deceive her husband; and his own troupe’s earlier plays Love, the Doctor (L’Amour médecin) and The Woodcutter (Le Fagotier). Sganarelle, the titular Doctor in Spite of Himself, appeared in many of Molière’s plays and was portrayed by the author. He appears generally as an egotistical bungler, vacillating between states of impulsive self-destruction and goofy dreaminess, possessed of both cunning and extreme gullibility. A Doctor in Spite of Himself would be the character’s final appearance in Molière’s oeuvre, and here, Sganarelle is elevated into an unwitting (and admittedly self-serving) parodist of pretention and agent of true love, performing double duty in satirizing the medical profession while abetting the union of two clever young lovers.

Molière wrote extensively about the way forced marriages turn love into a commodity, and, in his plays, those who dictate economics over love become tantamount to criminals. Much of Molière’s impact resulted from his acute awareness of what was funny— and what could be made fun of—during his era. So while A Doctor in Spite of Himself has never ranked amongst the playwright’s masterpieces, it provided him with abundant opportunities to win over crowds with scattershot jabs at everyone from Aristotle and Hippocrates to provincial folk and dysfunctional couples. In this new adaptation, Christopher Bayes and Steven Epp have taken up the same tradition, culling from comedic styles ranging from commedia dell’arte to the tramps of early twentiethcentury cinema to cultural signifiers cleft from the collective consciousness of 2011; just as Molière before them, they have striven to create a work of art that lives in the present moment without, for a moment, forgetting its past. —BF

YALE CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE YALE REPERTORY THEATRE is dedicated to the production of new plays and bold interpretations of classics and has produced well over 100 premieres—including two Pulitzer Prize winners and four other nominated finalists—by emerging and established playwrights. Eleven Yale Rep productions have advanced to Broadway, garnering more than 40 Tony Award nominations and eight Tony Awards. Yale Rep is also the recipient of the Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. Professional assignments at Yale Repertory Theatre are integral components of the program at Yale School of Drama, the nation’s leading graduate theatre training conservatory. Established in 2008, the YALE CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE is an artist-driven initiative that devotes major resources to the commissioning, development, and production of new plays and musicals at Yale Rep and across the country. A key component of the Center’s work is the support of productions of Yale-commissioned works at theatres other than Yale Rep. The Center also facilitates residencies of playwrights and composers at Yale School of Drama. To date, the Yale Center for New Theatre has supported the work of more than thirty commissioned artists as well as the world premieres and subsequent productions of nine new American plays and musicals—including this season’s Belleville by Amy Herzog, Good Goods by Christina Anderson, and The Realistic Joneses by Will Eno. Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground, adapted by Bill Camp and Robert Woodruff, was the first commissioned play supported by the Center to receive its world premiere at Yale Rep. In 2010, Notes had its West Coast premiere at La Jolla Playhouse and its New York premiere at Theatre for a New Audience, in association with the Baryshnikov Arts Center. The Center also supported the world premiere co-production of Rinne Groff’s Compulsion at Yale Rep, Berkeley Rep, and The Public Theater—as well as the world premiere of the Yale-commissioned On the Levee by Marcus Gardley, Todd Almond, and Lear deBessonet at Lincoln Center Theater’s LCT3.

COMMISSIONED ARTISTS David Adjmi, Todd Almond, Hilary Bell, Adam Bock, Bill Camp, Lear deBessonet, Will Eno, Marcus Gardley, Matt Gould, Kirsten Greenidge, Danai Gurira, Ann Marie Healy, Amy Herzog, Naomi Iizuka, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Aditi Brennan Kapil, Carson Kreitzer, Dan LeFranc, Elizabeth Meriwether, Scott Murphy, Julie Marie Myatt, David LeFort Nugent, Lina Patel, Jay Reiss, Sarah Ruhl, Octavio Solis, Lucy Thurber, Alice Tuan, Paula Vogel, Kathryn Walat, Anne Washburn, Marisa Wegrzyn, and Robert Woodruff
