By Molière, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur
A con man disguised as a pious spiritual leader wheedles his way into the home of a gullible wealthy man in the midst of a mid-life crisis—and promptly sets the household topsy turvy. If not for quick-witted Dorine, grounded Elmire, and patient Cléante, all might be lost! Lechery, egotism, young love, deception, and delusion collide in Moliere’s famous classic work that skewers religious hypocrisy and self-inflated egotism.

Based on a novel by Isabel Allende
Based on Isabel Allende’s best-selling novel, Caridad Svich’s The House of the Spirits follows three generations of the Trueba family — their loves, their ambitions, their spiritual quests, and their place in the post-colonial social and political turmoil embroiling their South American country. This darkly poetic adaptation incorporates magical realism to weave the personal and the political into a universal story of love, magic, and fate.
A series of student workshops will be announced at a later date.
