From the mind of Rob Raas-Bergquist, director of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, Ghost Light Theatricals opens its landmark 10th season with Scapin, an adaptation of Molière’s classic farce, in the style of commedia dell’arte—one of the oldest forms of improvised comedy in the world—as viewed through the lens of the late-70s punk rock revolution. Chaos ensues when the titular character (archetypal charlatan Scapin) is tasked with helping two young men marry their penniless lovers, and proves how quickly indeed a fool is parted with his money. Love, lies, laughter, and a live band, this promises to be one of our most fun shows yet! Anything could happen, never the same show twice, Scapin is not one to miss!
