After his death, Molière was gradually recognized in France as that country's most important dramatist. Along with this realization came a desire to write plays ABOUT the writer, his life on the stage, and his interaction with the other dramatists of his age, and also with King Louis XIV. Even Alexandre Dumas featured Molière as a character in his historical play, The Young Louis XIV. Molière himself was such a large, dynamic figure in real life that he made a perfect foil for later dramatists. Here are five plays by and about Molière: Molière at Ninon's, or, The Reading of Tartuffe, by René de Chazet and Jean-Baptiste Dubois; Scene Added for the Anniversary of Molière, by Charles Moreau; The King Is Waiting, by George Sand; Cyrano and Molière, by George Jubin; and The Love Doctor, by Molière. Great drama and great fun!
