TART: An adaptation of TARTUFFE

TART: An adapation of TARTUFFE

This production reset the action from Orgon’s stately home in 17th Century France to backstage at his gay nightclub in the present day; where Orgon’s family of friends, lovers, and drag performers unite to try and save him from the “salvation” offered by the moral crusader Tartuffe. TART is a shockingly funny yet serious examination of hypocrisy in all its forms and a parable on the dangers of externalized and internalized oppression; all within a dazzling package of slapstick comedy, rhyming couplets, and drag numbers. This production ran June 1 through June 16, 2018 at the Bryant Lake Bowl, Minneapolis. Partnering Nonprofit: RECLAIM. Reclaim.care
