LES PRÉCIEUSES RIDICULES
« In my opinion, I believe that, outside Paris, there is no salvation for honest people. »
Such is Cathos’ and Magdelon’s credo, the anti-heroins of the Précieuses ridicules drama. These two young women want to exist , whatever the price to pay, in the eyes of a society which refuses to acknowledge their existence, using means that nobody understands. They will finally fall in the trap set by two suitors that they have humiliated, and they will reach a point of blindness which gives to the play its comic strength, and also its current topical questions.
