"The Countess of Escarbagnas" is one of Molière's best one-act plays. The play blends broad farce and pointed wit to express his never-ending delight in human foibles. The main character is a snobby provincial who sees herself as a "person of quality" because she has been to Paris, even though she only stayed in hotels and not at the houses of any aristocrats. She must select between two suitors, fighting for her attention and getting into truly amusing stories. It is a perfect comedy criticizing the flaws of society.
