Event Description: 


The GCC Forum Players are excited to present Moliere's Tartuffe, translated into English Verse by Richard Wilbur, this February 9-11 @ 7:30pm. The show follows the chaos surrounding the titular character who completely entrances Orgon, a wealthy patriarch, into giving away his fortune, his family, and even some dangerous secrets. Will the family reveal Tartuffe for the scoundrel he is, or will Tartuffe take hold of the estate and ruin this family forever? 

Originally written in the 1600s, Tartuffe was condemned for its unflinching takedown of religious hypocrisy and the odd behaviors of the upper classes. This production, set among the elite of 1980s Miami, takes a skewer to televangelist con artists, clueless yuppies, corporate greed, and unending consumption, all to the sounds of new-wave synth-pop. Tartuffe  opens Thursday, February 9, 2023 and runs through Saturday, February 11. All performances are all 7:30pm. Tickets are available at the link below or at the door.

Ticket prices: $10 general admission, $5 non-GCC students/GCC faculty & staff/seniors 55+, $0 GCC students with ID
