Very loosely adapted and even more loosely translated by Andy Jones
from the play of the same name by Molière
directed by Jilllian Keiley
featuring Robert Joy and Greg Malone
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 there will be a robust education program with activities linking youth and artists from coast to coast to coast, with theatricality at its heart.
Tartuffe will take to the road in Newfoundland for a six-performance, five-city tour in September and October.
Thursday, September 28 and Friday, September 29 – St. John’s, Arts & Culture Centre
Wednesday, October 4 – Stephenville, Arts & Culture Centre
Saturday, October 7 – Cornerbrook, Arts & Culture Centre
Wednesday, October 11 – Grand Falls-Windsor Gordon Pinsent Centre for the Arts
Saturday, October 14 – Gander, Joseph R. Smallwood Arts & Culture Centre
A detailed schedule for each of the performances can be found at artsandculturecentre.com
