Co-directed by Theatre Arts faculty members Amy Holtcamp & Silas Cooper, the NOCCA Drama Division presents a hilarious update on the classic Tartuffe, performances nightly, October 24-26, 7 PM, in the Freda Lupin Memorial Hall at NOCCA, 2800 Chartres Street, New Orleans. This will surely be a sell-out; purchase tickets now by visiting www.nocca.com as general seating is $10.
This modern adaptation casts Tartuffe as a deposed televangelist who rooks Orgon and his family of their money and property and nearly compromises Orgon's wife. The action takes place in a religious television studio in Baton Rouge where the characters cavort to either prevent or aid Tartuffe in his machinations. Written in modern verse, Tartuffe: Born Again adheres closely to the structure and form of the original. Moliere's legendary comedic characters are delightfully at home in this modern day version that played at New York's Circle in the Square.
