2016 SSG Classic Fest will feature Molière’s Tartuffe and A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen.
Molière’s Tartuffe is about a wealthy Monsieur Orgon that has welcomed Tartuffe, an evangelical fraud, into his home. Tartuffe threatens to marry Orgon’s daughter, seduces his wife, and steals his property from right under his nose. Tartuffe’s scandalous behavior is exposed in the nick of time. The master of classic French comedy has created a saucy, sparkling confection that speaks to our times. Teeming with lively humor and satirical plot devices, this timeless comedy by one of France's greatest and most influential playwrights will leave you laughing.
A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen, richly displays the genius with which Henrik Ibsen pioneered modern, realistic drama. In the central character of Nora, Ibsen epitomized the human struggle against the humiliating constraints of social conformity. Nora's ultimate rejection of a smothering marriage and life in "a doll's house" shocked theatergoers of the late 1800s and opened new horizons for playwrights and their audiences.
