An adaptation by Andy Jones
Directed by Jilllian Keiley
Coming in 2017!
As part of Canada’s 2017 Sesquicentennial celebrations, the National Arts Centre will take one of English Theatre’s most popular recent productions, Tartuffe by east-coast comedy genius Andy Jones, back from whence it came! Moliere’s classic, performed by the English Theatre Ensemble under the direction of Jillian Keiley, is re-imagined with a sprinkling of Newfoundland charm.
In addition to performances around Newfoundland and Labrador there will be a robust education program with activities linking youth and artists from coast to coast to coast, with theatricality at its heart.
The tour of Tartuffe is made possible with support from Elinor Gill Ratcliffe C.M., O.N.L., LLD (hc), Penney Group, as well as Rick Mercer and Gerald Lunz.
“French original takes on comedic Newfoundland flavour... Andy Jones in clerical collar and purple stock is superb... .” THE TELEGRAM
