In heaven, the Goddess of Fame announces her intention to marry a genius of theatre. Her servants Dato, Mito and Chisme take her to Paris to meet Molière and learn about his eventful life and hilarious works. A story of love, heartbreak, jealousy, encounters, failed meetings, duels, dances, songs… and a selection of some of the most amusing, ironic, sarcastic and scandalous scenes by the genius of comedy. Vive Molière is a tribute to the preeminent comic playwright of modern times. An homage, an investigation and above all, a celebration of his display of memorable characters, situations and scenes. 
Ay Teatro presents a delirious, carefree and iconoclastic vision of the great comedy writer, of his theatrical environment and of his century that searches for the essence of drama as a game of the imagination. A commitment to “poor theatre” based on elementary resources and at the same time dressed in culture, beauty, rigour and the festive spirit of classic Spanish and universal theatre. Because originality comes from origins. Ay Teatro brings together the creative talent of the stage director Yayo Cáceres and the poet and playwright Alvaro Tato, accompanied by the theatrical producer and distributor Emilia Yagüe.
