A Comedy-Ballet presented at Chambord, France, for the entertainment of the King, in the month of October, 1670, and to the public in Paris for the first time at the Palais-Royal Theater 23 November 1670.
One of Moliere’s most talked-about plays, ‘The Middle Class Gentleman’ (meant to be a paradox) is filled with his usual clever humour and coherent writing; yet another masterpiece from one of France’s greatest. Behind the obvious humour lies an attempt to satirize the idea of social climbing, personified by the silly and ignorant Monsieur Jourdain who aspires to climb the social ladder by buying his way into French aristocracy. With myriad merry mishaps, this play is indeed a must-watch/must-read, for behind its seemingly innocent plot, lies a glimpse of seventeenth century France.–Submitted by Nora

Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, known by his stage name Molière (/mɒlˈjɛər/ or /moʊlˈjɛər/; French: [mɔ.ljɛːʁ]; 15 January 1622 – 17 February 1673), was a French playwright and actor who is considered to be one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature. Among Molière’s best known works are The Misanthrope, The School for Wives, Tartuffe, The Miser, The Imaginary Invalid, and The Bourgeois Gentleman.
Born into a prosperous family and having studied at the Collège de Clermont (now Lycée Louis-le-Grand), Molière was well suited to begin a life in the theatre. Thirteen years as an itinerant actor helped him polish his comic abilities while he began writing, combining Commedia dell’arte elements with the more refined French comedy.
