David Grimm's
The Learned Ladies 
of Park Avenue

Directed by
Michael Graham

     Translated and Freely Adapted 
      from Moliere's Les Femmes Savantes

A jazz-age screwball comedy riff on Moliere's biting satire of "The Learned Ladies" is about pretense and learning.  Betty wants to marry Dicky.  Her mother, Phyllis, a self-proclaimed intellectual and political activist, has another man in mind - namely the hack poet and scheming opportunist Upton Gabbitt.  Set in 1936 Manhattan against the backdrop of the Great Depression and impending war, this romantic comedy skewers those who wear their social conscience on their sleeve and affirms that love will conquer all.
