Les Femmes Savantes

The University of Edinburgh French Theatre Society, ‘Les Escogriffes’, is very proud to present an online screening of our former annual production,“Les Femmes Savantes” by Molière.

This classic French-language comedy, adapted for a 21st century audience, follows the story of star-crossed lovers, Henriette and Clémentine, who must overcome their families disapproving attitudes to be together.

Will these two women have their happily ever after? Find out by streaming our play during the Scottish Online Student Drama Festival!
