LIVE Online Saturday, June 27, 2020, 2 & 7pm ET
Replay on YouTube through July 1
From the acclaimed team that brought you The Misanthrope, comes free, LIVE virtual performances of Molière’s most theatrical comedy Tartuffe starring Raúl E. Esparza and Samira Wiley. This production of Tartuffe, translated by Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Wilbur, is directed by Molière in the Park founder Lucie Tiberghien.
Tartuffe: a dubiously pious crook, happy to use the bible as a prop for personal gain. Oronte: a naive and lost, aging patriarch, lusting for his fleeting power. Sound familiar? When these two forces meet, chaos ensues in the family, until lies and fallacy are exposed and extracted from the home.
There will be LIVE Q&As with the cast and creative team immediately following both performances. Attendees can submit questions directly through the comments/chat features on the streaming platforms.
Performance: 90 minutes
Q&A: 20 minutes
