Love is the Best Doctor by Molière (1622 - 1673). Translated by Henri van Laun (1820 - 1896)


Quote:
Four most fashionable doctors are called in by Sganarelle to cure his daughter, but instead they argue about everything and Sganarellle is driven to the streets where he finds a quack and his daughter's disguised lover.

Moliere: "This is only a slight impromptu, a simple pencil sketch, which it has pleased the King to have made into an entertainment. It is the most hastily composed of all those written by order of his Majesty; and when I say that it was sketched, written, learned, and acted in five days, I shall only be speaking the truth."

This is a spoken version, without the songs and dances to the music of Lully. (ToddHW)



    Yet another Moliere. Once again, Kitty is our wonderful DPL! Casting is gender neutral as always.

    When reading your voice credit, please include the full title or description as given in the MW

    By the way, the abbreviation M = Monsieur, MM = Monsieurs



    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/dramaticworksofm03moliiala#page/135/mode/1up
    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!

He's only in one act, but Clitandre seems to have some mischief up his sleeve. I'd enjoy giving him a go! :)

I'd like, if I may, to claim Monseiur Macroton. Who, I have it on excellent authority, speaks by drawing out each word in an exaggerated fashion.

I used to have a Modern History teacher who spoke like this about thirty-five plus years ago. If you're listening, Sir, this one's for you. :twisted:

Cheers,
Chris

P.S. I'm not kidding. I will be channelling Dr T.'s speech pattern the whole time. No student of his could ever forget it. I assure you no modern listener will either. Dang, Todd, but you are one therapeutic MC. :mrgreen:

To be perfectly accurate, he had this WEIRD habit of hitting the final syllable in virtually every word.

"Good morn-ING, BOYS. To-DAY, we WILL be study-ING the Committ-EE of Pub-LIC Safe-TY."

I can reproduce it perfectly, but I warn you, it gets nerve-wracking. Are you sure you want this? :shock:

Plus he was a supporter of the New Zealand rugby team. If his team lost at the weekend, we knew we were in for a crummy week. But we didn't care BECAUSE THE WALLABIES HAD WON! :mrgreen:

Cheers,
Chris

at this point, the question is more: do we have a choice ? :roll:

Well now I am curious about this quirky speech, so hit me with it :mrgreen: I suppose this is totally in the spirit of Molière.

How bad can it be?

Thanks, Todd

I'd let fly with the evil, maniacal laugh, but I have people on retainer to handle that for me.

Dr Joe

P.S. May I just take this opportunity to deny these scurrilous allegations that I left my hat inside my surgical patient after I closed.

Only one speech but a bit of a challenge!

Thank you. Note the confusion about LUC as indicated in the MW - but if you look at the list of characters at the beginning of each scene you can tell if Lucinde or Lucretia is meant.

Thanks, Todd
