Lessons on resilience, regeneration from Iran

Zara Noruzi is one of the special guest speakers at the Byron Shire Resilience and Regeneration Roadshow, hosted by Renew Fest and Resilient Byron.

One of Australia’s most acclaimed theatre companies, Bell Shakespeare, returns to NORPA with Molière’s The School for Wives, a beguiling comedy filled to the brim with witty repartee, hilariously misguided decisions and a delightful feeling that we should all just relax and have a wine. The School For Wives is the story of a man with a problem. He wants desperately to get married but is afraid that a smart woman will cheat on him.

His ingenious solution? Enlist the help of a local convent to raise a girl so stupidly innocent that she won’t know the first thing about cheating – let alone the last. In his mind she will be ever-faithful. The perfect wife. Or is she?

The School For Wives is one of Molière’s finest comedies and has been raising eyebrows in comic disbelief since it was first performed 350 years ago.

Wednesday 8 August at Lismore City Hall.

Two shows: 10.30am & 7.30pm
