Le Moyne College Hosts One-Man Play, “Molière Than Thou”

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Timothy Mooney brings his one-man play, “Molière Than Thou,” to Le Moyne College on Thursday, March 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts.

When Molière wrote his comedies, he drained the comic vein in a way no one had before or has since. He knew better than anyone how to fill a situation with the hot air of pretension or hypocrisy, and to pop it with the needle of comic invective.

Timothy Mooney has adapted 15 Molière plays to the stage. “Molière Than Thou” is drawn entirely from his new versions of these plays, and has received rave reviews all over the U.S. and Canada while turning a new generation on to Molière. Mooney previously served as artistic director of Stage Two Theatre, taught acting at Northern Illinois University and wrote The Script Review, a newsletter for playwrights and producers.

The performance is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the departments of foreign languages, theater arts and English; the offices of student development, provost, and dean of arts & sciences; and the Lectures and Lively Arts Committees.
