This adaptation of Molière's 325-year-old farce Les Fourberies de Scapin follows-with some alterations-the play's original structure. It keeps the play in period setting while adding a late twentieth century spin to the language and action, and borrowing some final lines from Molière's La Contesse D'escarbagnas

"This SCAPIN, directed by Irwin...from his felicitous adaptation with Mark O'Donnell, would probably have gone over big with the same audience who first saw Molière's Fourberies de Paris in 1671." -NY Times. 

"Commedia dell'arte and vaudeville have at least two things in common: baggy pants and Bill Irwin. All make for a natural fit in the celebrated clown's entirely unconventional adaptation of Molière's SCAPIN." -Variety.

Scapin will be played by Juliard Graduate Brenden Spieth.

Roles: 6 men, 3 women (extra's flexible casting) - 11 Total
