The Pests presented by Kansas City Actors Theatre at H&R Block City Stage Theatre at Union Station, Kansas City MO

The Pests | January 12-30 at 7:30 PM except for 2:00 PM on Sunday | City Stage in Union Station | A brand new adaptation and translation of Molière’s “Les Fâcheux,” translated and adapted by Dr. Felicia Londré

Newly translated and adapted by UMKC professor Dr. Felicia Londré as part of the city-wide celebration, “KC MOlière: 400 in 2022,” “The Pests” follows the hilarious travails of a French nobleman desperately trying—in the face of continuous interruption—to be on time for a rendezvous with the object of his affection. In his 1661 comedy, “Les Fâcheux,” Molière, one of history’s greatest playwrights, dared to mock the hangers-on at the court of France’s Louis XIV.
