Welcome to Paris at the time of Louis XIV. Come backstage and meet the King's theatre company - a troupe of, grande dames, old hams, ing?nue's and of course, their leading man. Right at the centre, author of their dramas and cause of all their troubles - Thon man Moliere. In constant threat of debtor's prison, in big bother with church and state and - worst of all - disastrously in love with the wrong wife, Jean-Baptiste Poquelin de Moliere writes brilliant comedies inspired by a desperate life. But telling the truth is a dangerous business and getting his latest drama on stage could be the death of him!
