Adapted by David Ball

in rotating repertory with The Christians

Directed by Saheem Ali

a comedy of religious proportions

The man of the house has lost his mind. He has been blinded by the counterfeit zeal of a penniless scoundrel who fully intends to make off with his wife, his livelihood, and probably the kitchen sink. This modern interpretation of Molière’s most popular play is as intense and incisive as the day it was written, and just as entertaining. Theatre’s most devout conman returns to PlayMakers after 25 years.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
