The Financier (Turcaret) by Alain-René Lesage. Original translation by Joanne Miller and Laurie Steven
Have we got a treat for you!
Our Artistic Director, Laurie Steven, returns to the directing chair to put on an Odyssey twist on Alain-René Lesage's masterpiece with an original translation by herself and Joanne Miller.
This comedic fiasco is about Turcaret, a loan shark and a tax collector, whose sly dealings have come full circle on him. A menagerie of cash-hungry swindlers prey on each other, exposing slaves to passion, excess, and artifice. Only the most single-minded, the most cunning and the most charming will survive.
Don’t miss our vibrant combination of physicality, music, dance and luxurious masks that bring this spicy play to life.
Shows start at 8pm and doors open at 7:30pm.
