Tartuffe at North Coast Repertory Theatre

 
SOLANA BEACH, Calif. - Feb. 13, 2024 - PRLog -- North Coast Repertory Theatre promises an evening of wit, satire, and uproarious laughter with Molière's timeless comedic masterpiece, TARTUFFE, March 6 to April 7. This extraordinary production, translated into English verse by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Richard Wilbur, is directed by Richard Baird.

Tartuffe, a charismatic charlatan, insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy family, setting off a chain reaction of disruption and pandemonium. Wilbur's translation infuses the play with wicked precision and brilliantly rhyming verses, highlighting its satirical commentary on religious hypocrisy, duplicity, lust, and self-inflicted chaos.

Following its run at North Coast Rep, TARTUFFE will transfer to Laguna Playhouse, ensuring that even more theatre enthusiasts can experience this exciting take on a classic.
