Farce Takes Flight! - A Bill Irwin Tour De Force
by Moli?re
Adapted by Bill Irwin and Mark O'Donnell
Directed by Bill Irwin

Two-time Tony Award winner Bill Irwin (A.C.T.'s Fool Moon, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? on Broadway, the award-winning film Rachel Getting Married) returns to the Bay Area in Moli?re's chaotic classic. In this lively baggy-pants comedy, the rascally title character balances his penchant for mayhem and mischief with a promise to help two pairs of wide-eyed lovers. Joined by a dazzling ensemble of Bay Area favorites, fellow alumni of San Francisco's beloved Pickle Family Circus, and rising young stars, Irwin whips commedia dell'arte, live music, and his trademark sophisticated clowning into a frenzy, transforming this 17th-century farce of mistaken identities and mishaps into a sparkling theatrical event perfect for all ages.
