The patriarchy is a bitch. French playwright Molière pointed that out as long ago as 1662. In his farce The School for Wives, he highlights this mistaken male thought: "Keep her dumb, and she'll be faithful and never question your authority." I won't spoil the ending, but lucky for you the Dallas Theater Center will be performing The School for Wives at the end of this month and all throughout March. Head to Kalita Humphreys Theater (3636 Turtle Creek Blvd.) for opening night at 8 p.m. Friday and see a play that makes the #meninist movement look all the more pathetic. The show runs through March 29. Tickets start at $22. Go to dallastheatercenter.org for more info
