Theatre/Sewanee will present Moliere's farce, SCAPIN, Wednesday thru Saturday, October 14-17, at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee, October 18, at 2 p.m. Due to COVID restrictions, audience size will be limited to 35 and no one will be admitted without a reservation. In addition, all audience members should be masked.
The play involves the crafty Scapin who promises to help in the difficulties of Leandre and his friend, Octave, who have fallen in love with girls whose family identities are unknown. The action of the comedy consists of the various tricks Scapin plays upon the fathers of the two young men to ensure the happiness of the sons. The plot is little more than a framework for the scenes of comic deception and horseplay.
Heading the cast is Finn Gallagher in the role of the trickster, Scapin, with Ben Davis as his sidekick, Sylvestre. Christopher Talbot and Lucius Atherton play the two young men with Trtistan Ketcham and Dillon Sheehan as their fathers. Lang Phillippi and Emma Miller are the two young ladies with Kalia Thompson as the nurse and Matthew Acosta as another trickster.
SCAPIN is directed by Peter Smith and Nathaniel Klein with scenery and lighting by Dan Backlund and costumes by Greer King. John Marshall is technical director and Zachary Swafford is production stage manager.
