George Dandin ou le Mari confondu
George Dandin ou le Mari confondu (Georges Dandin or the Confounded Husband) is a French comedy by Molière. It premiered on 18 July 1668 at the Palace of Versailles. Subsequent public performances were given in the theatre of the Palais-Royal beginning on 9 November 1668.
The play showcases the folly a man commits when he marries a woman of higher rank than his own. Molière's Dandin is an impersonation of a husband who has patiently to endure all the extravagant whims and fancies of his dame of a wife.
