By Molière, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur  
Directed by Domenique Lozano
Playhouse Production // Zellerbach Playhouse
November 9-18, 2018
This performance runs 2 hours and 15 minutes (includes one 10-minute intermission)
General seating.

A con man disguised as a pious spiritual leader wheedles his way into the home of a gullible wealthy man in the midst of a mid-life crisis—and promptly sets the household topsy turvy. If not for the quick witted Dorine, grounded Elmire, and infinitely patient Cléante, all might be lost! Lechery, egotism, young love, deception, and delusion collide in Moliere’s famous classic work that skewers religious hypocrisy and self-inflated egotism.
