Hanging aslant along the back wall is a worn and tattered red velvet curtain as if this theatrum mundi has undergone some heavy wear and tear since it was created. Dom Juan is altogether more elegant in a blousy white shirt, black pants and boots.
Done Elvire, the distraught woman Dom Juan abandoned, is clad in a worn wedding gown and the various peasants — Charlotte, Gusman and Pierrot — are dressed in work clothes that could belong to any period from the late 19th-century on. This costuming implies that the morality Dom Luis and Dom Alonse represent is outmoded in comparison with the up-to-date immorality of Dom Juan.
The question, however, is why Sganarelle, who also represents a traditional moral world view is dressed in contemporary garb like Dom Juan.
Don Juan, ou le Festin de pierre by Molière
As depicted by Beddows, Sganarelle is not only devoted to his master as a faithful servant but may actually be in love with him. This very love is what makes Sganarelle try so hard to dissuade Dom Juan from further sin and to encourage him to repent. Does this love so taint him as to make him a corrupt contemporary or should Sganarelle really be identified more with upholders of traditional virtue?
Beddows emphasizes the theme of role-playing by staging the play with only six actors. Pierre Simpson as Dom Juan and Marcelo Arroyo as Sganarelle play only those single roles, but the rest of the cast play two or three roles each and move to the impromptu dressing rooms to change their costumes in view of the audience. The irony is that Dom Juan and Sganarelle are opposites.
Review: Dom Juan (Théâtre Français de Toronto) | Mooney on Theatre
Will his wrongdoings catch up with him in the end? Dom Juan has just left his most recent wife, Elvire, whom he stole from a convent.

For this seducer, loyalty is a prison, yet marriage proposals are plentiful! Having returned back to his bachelor pad, Dom Juan finds himself confronted by everyone he has wronged, urging him to follow a righteous honorable path. Instead of heeding their words, Dom Juan resorts to mockery and hypocrisy. Will he be punished for his behavior, or will all be forgiven? A lively production combining the arts of circus, song and dance to create an atmosphere both light and menacing. A wonderful revisiting of the classic that pleased even the younger crowd I brought with me!
An interpretation full of humour, expressive characters were played marvellously, bravo to all the actors! The theatre itself is rich in history and over years old, after being converted to replace the chateau's music room by the landowner of the time into his own private venue where he could invite all the best-known actors and musicians in Paris to play there for him and his friends.
After his death, the entire estate was destroyed to make way for the expanding city of Paris. All, that is, except for the theatre which was miraculously saved, and to this day still stands in its original spot! The theatre is designed in the French style, meaning all of the seats are directly facing the stage and giving the auditorium a rectangular shape.
The venue also features a small bar in its foyer complete with a fireplace and enough seating for up to 80 people, perfect for a drink before the performance.
