The Rotating Repertory

Our rotating repertory alternates two shows on the same stage in one production period, in order to spark more conversation together than they would apart. Though different in period, style, form and content, both The Christians and Tartuffe share an exciting subversiveness in their investigation of religion and questions of faith & following.

SPECIAL EVENT—Faith in Our Lives: Why We Follow
March 10 @ 4:00pm

Join us at a FREE panel discussion in the Kenan Theatre between two national luminaries in the world of religious scholars:

• Dr. Robert Franklin, former President of Morehouse College and Director of the Religion Program at The Chautauqua Institution, alongside
• Dr. Bart Ehrman, national best-selling author and Religious Studies professor at UNC-Chapel Hill.
• Adam Versényi, moderator, is the Chair of UNC’s Department of Dramatic Art and Dramaturg for PlayMakers Repertory Company. He is also a theatre scholar, dramaturg, critic, translator, director, and author.

Dr. Franklin and Dr. Ehrman will engage with audiences and explore how faith and belief serve us both personally and collectively, as well as what may be risk when doctrine plays too little or too large a role in our lives.

Roy C. Dix, Triangle Today
