Les Fâcheux (The Bores)
by Molière

Les Fâcheux (The Bores) is a character-comedy. Peculiarities are exhibited in different forms by a succession of characters, introduced one after the other in rapid course. We do not find an evolution of natural situations, but rather a series of tableaux.

The success of the piece on its first representation, which took place on the 17th of August, 1661, was unequivocal; and the King summoned the author before him in order personally to express his satisfaction. It is related that, the Marquis de Soyecourt passing by at the time, the King said to Molière, "There is an original character which you have not yet copied." The suggestion was enough. The result was that, at the next representation, Dorante the hunter, a new bore, took his place in the comedy.
