Best French Plays

Written by on | Best Of / Lists Plays

When I first read Molière’s Don Juan at drama school I was blown away. It was a fast-pace, comic masterpiece. I was laughing out loud to a play almost 400 years old. Ever since, I have been a huge fan-boy of Molière. He remains one of the great playwrights, and is still relevant and highly comical today. Molière is often the playwright that comes to mind when thinking of french dramatists, but he is simply the tip of the iceberg.
