Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Molière’s comedy about the notorious womaniser, in a fresh and performable translation by Kenneth McLeish.

Set in Sicily, Moliere’s play retells the famous myth of Don Juan, the womaniser with no morals and a scorn for religion. It charts his relationship with his servant Sganarelle, his romantic philandering, his false conversion and his ultimate punishment.

Don Juan was first performed in 1665 in the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, Paris, with Molière playing the role of Sganarelle.

This version in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series is translated and introduced by Kenneth McLeish.
