Independence, KS - ICC Theatre is proud to present Molière's TARTUFFE, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur. This timeless Restoration Comedy has been a classic since 1669 when it was written. Performances start the evening of December 1 – 3 in the William Inge Theatre, admission is free.
“Come see how relevant and topical this play that was written over 350 years ago is,” said Paul Molnar, ICC Theatre Director. “A beautifully designed set by Director of Technical Theatre Joel Williams, and a stunning costume design by student Braelyn George create a world that is captivating, surprising, and a must see.”
A wealthy prominent man named Orgon takes in a seemingly pious man named Tartuffe. Quickly the entire household sees that Tartuffe is nothing but a fraud who is trying to swindle his mark, Orgon, out of his fortunes, as he tries to marry his daughter Maryanne, and court in secret, his wife. This play is the original ‘Big Lie’.
Our showtimes are as follows:
Friday, December 1 @ 7 PM
Saturday, December 2 @ 7 PM (Talkback follows the performance)
Sunday, December 3 @ 2 PM Closing
