Spend the morning expanding your knowledge of the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production of Tartuffe. The multi-hour symposium will look deeply into both text and production, and encourage audiences to examine the work they see on stage from a well-informed perspective.
Topics and panelists include:
- A New-ish Tartuffe
Discover directly from director Dominique Serrand and adaptor David Ball about this production’s past and why Serrand keeps returning to Moliere’s tale of religious hypocrisy over the years and what makes this adaptation unique. Moderated by STC’s Artistic Fellow Garrett Anderson.
- The Edge of Comedy
