Temple Theaters presents
directed by Douglas C. Wager
Lothario and libertine Jacques Cornet revels in the wealth and women of progressive and hedonistic 19th-Century New Orleans; but his way of life is about to be challenged by the politics of the new Louisiana Purchase. This satirical drama by the award-winning playwright John Guare is a mix of history lesson, Restoration comedy and sex farce.
