Student wins tickets to comic play

Monday’s DailyNews quiz proved too tough for readers to handle: not one respondent got all three questions right.

Fourth-year biology student Arnub Farooqui came closest and will receive the prize of a pair of tickets to see the University Players production of Molière Impromptu, which continues through Sunday at Essex Hall Theatre.

Farooqui correctly replied that Jim Warren had previously directed the Molière classic Tartuffe and that the current play draws on commedia dell’arte traditions. However, she answered that Rinne Groff’s Molière Impromptu is adapted from L’Impromptu de Versailles, when it fact it is based on that work as well as Le Mariage forcé and Le Médecin malgré lui.

The play’s run features performances at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday. For more information or tickets, call 519-253-3000, ext. 2808, or visit
