George Dandin: or The Abashed Husband by Molière (1622 - 1673). Translated by Henri Van Laun (1820 - 1896)

"The treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle having been ratified ... and peace being assured ... Louis XIV resolved to give a festival in his favorite gardens of Versailles. Moliere's comedy, George Dandin, formed the chief entertainment." The plot: A wife comes home rather late, finds the door shut, and threatens to kill herself if her husband does not let her in. She pretends to do so; the good man rushes out quite terrified; the wife, meanwhile, sneaks in, and he is in his turn locked out. Add in her idiot parents (Sotenville means Idiot In Town) and this should be the usual madcap fun.
( Translater and ToddHW)

This project is complete, Audio files may be found in the Librivox catalog at https://librivox.org/george-dandin-or-the-abashed-husband-by-henri-van-laun/
  • Here we go again - just the thing for a rainy New Year's Eve.

    We are over the halfway mark in presenting all the Moliere plays!

    Gender neutral casting as always. And the unstoppable Kitty is our wonderful DPL.



    1. Is there a deadline?
      We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen. Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    2. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
      To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/stream/dramaticworksofm04moliiala#page/220/mode/2up
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

      If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.



      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thank you - first in, and all PL OK. Wonderful characterization. I think it appropriate that your lines are abbreviated "MAD" in the stage directions.... I am going to watch my step very carefully as your husband!

There was a line that I recorded last night as The Duke in The Gondoliers that seems appropriate here. Speaking to my new son-in-law: "Take her, and may she make you happier than her mother has made me."
DUCHESS. Sir!
DUKE. If possible.

Thanks, Todd

Here is the recording for Colin. I loved the stage directions surrounding his introduction.
