Tartuffe

By Molière
Adapted by David Ball
Directed by Dominique Serrand
Roda Theatre · March 13–April 12, 2015

“As spellbinding as a deadly snake charmed from its basket…” This modern interpretation of Molière’s most popular play – featuring a hypnotic Steven Epp as the deceitful hypocrite– is as intense and incisive as the day it was written, and just as entertaining. “Both brooding drama and zippy farce…a stylistic triumph,” says the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

One Man, Two Guvnors

By Richard Bean
Directed by David Ivers
Roda Theatre · May 8–June 21, 2015
West Coast premiere

Join Francis in the fun as he leads you through this topsy-turvy world of love triangles and mistaken identities. It’s more than a sassy update of Carlo Goldoni’s classic knee-slapper, A Servant of Two Masters. It’s a brilliantly delicious mash-up of splendid comedy, British pantomime, and music-hall revues. “Gut-busting,” says the Hollywood Reporter.
