The 2016/17 Season opens with Tartuffe!

Commonwealth Theatre Center is proud to welcome audiences for the opening of our merged company’s 41st season with an uproarious French comedy.

Tartuffe-posterSeptember 22 – October 1

Tartuffe

by Molière, adapted by Richard WIlbur
directed by Charlie Sexton

Tartuffe visits the house of a wealthy nobleman and his mother, both of whom are blinded by the pious façade that the rest of the family finds suspicious. This classic comedy by one of history’s great dramatists animates religious hypocrisy while eliciting both laughter & condemnation.

This is the first play of a landmark season for Commonwealth Theatre Center, as the recently merged company will join an elite handful of theatres to have completed the Shakespeare Canon. That CTC will unlock this achievement with 41 years of theatre featuring the young actors from the Walden Theatre Conservatory marks this completion as distinctive.
