    MARIN THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS A DELL’ARTE COMPANY PRODUCTION OF MOLIÈRE’S ‘TARTUFFE’

    Start Date: Thursday 11/9/2006 — End Date: Sunday 12/10/2006
    Admission:See Above

    Marin Theatre Company presents the internationally acclaimed Dell’Arte Company’s visually spectacular production of Molière’s, TARTUFFE, November 9 through December 10, 2006. This production is an adaptation of the classic comedy, written by Molière in the 1700s). Using masks, monkeys, music and their trademark physical comedy, Dell’Arte takes on TARTUFFE (played by Michael Fields, who is also the artistic director of Dell’Arte), a religious charlatan who takes over a family’s life until the tables are turned by virtue of his own excesses. Considered one of Molière’s most provocative and timeless works, it riffs on the theme of religious hypocrisy while delving into the comical belief that our values are the only right ones. And, if only others would behave as we do, the world would be a much better place. Performances are Thursday, November 9 through Sunday, December 10, with Opening Night on Wednesday, November 15th at 7:30 pm.
