Límpromptu de Versailles comedie en un acte by Molière( visu )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in French and held by 42 libraries worldwide
The Impromptu is disarmingly frank, spontaneous, and engaging, and the plot is simplicity itself: a troupe of actors gathers to rehearse a new play. This rehearsal is not, strictly speaking, a real play; it is really a pre-play playfully presenting the "real" actors to an audience which is not really supposed to be present yet. It is a hopelessly fragmented play about the frustrations and rewards of fragmentation; raising questions of power, performance, and the role of the intellectual in social critique. It offers a dazzling argument for intertextuality, reflexivity, and autonomy in the domain of artistic production, while staging some of the major tenets of post-structuralist criticism

Sailing, capsizing, lovemaking, disguising, and rescuing follow as merry rake Dom Juan proceeds with his endless progress.
