By: Moliere
Translated by: Richard Wilbur

Rhett Luedtke

Location: Wood-Mar Auditorium 

Oct. 22-24 and Oct. 29-31 at 7:30 p.m.

Synopsis: Tartuffe was originally banned from the theatre when it was first performed in 1664 and has been delighting audiences ever since. Tartuffe, a slick, religious charlatan, dupes Orgon, a rich family man, into believing that Tartuffe is deeply concerned for Orgon’s eternal salvation. Orgon’s family members see through the charade and do all they can to open Orgon’s eyes, but to no avail. When Orgon promises Tartuffe his daughter’s hand in marriage, and the keys to his house, Elmire (Orgon’s wife) concocts a daring plan to open Orgon’s eyes once and for all. One of Moliere’s most celebrated comedies, Tartuffe has historically been loathed by religious hypocrites, but celebrated by the wise.

**Tartuffe is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Synopsis: Percy Talbott, just released from the Taycheedah Correctional Institution for Women, arrives in the small town of Gilead, Wis., with the dream of starting life anew. Hannah Ferguson, the owner of the Spitfire Grill (which happens to be for sale), hires Percy despite the vocal opposition from the community. Suspicion grows when Percy convinces Hannah to raffle off the Grill instead of selling it. Entry fees are $100, and the best essay on why you want the Grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow and new life is infused into the community. Based on the 1996 hit movie, The Spitfire Grill will warm your heart and remind you of the power of redemption and renewal in a messy world.

Spring Drama

The Balcan Women

The Balkan Women

By: Jules Tasca
Directed by: Cambria Herrera

April 8-9 & 14-16 at 7:30 p.m.
April 17 at 2 p.m.

Synopsis: Samira and Amina Jusic, two devout Muslim women, find themselves in a Serbian detention camp for Muslim women in the midst of the Balkan Wars (1990s). Sixteen Serbian soldiers have been killed by a car bomb at the local fuel depot. One of the women in the camp is responsible, and the Serbs will use whatever interrogation tactic necessary to find the culprit. Jules Tasca’s update of Euripides’ The Trojan Women is a dynamic meditation on the power of family ties in the midst of the Balkan Wars. The play pits men against women, Serbs against Bosnians, and Christians against Muslims. The unforgettable outcome will leave you breathless.

PLAY CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT (violence, language, sexual intimidation). Recommended for ages 14 and above.

** Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
