Perisphere Theater: Creating compelling theater that expands the way DC audiences view the past, the present, and one another.



January 25–February 4, 2018

Our next full production will be Moliere’s Tartuffe, translated by Richard Wilbur, and directed by Bridget Grace Sheaff. A farce from the 17th century, Tartuffe employs witty rhyming couplets and classic characters in a sendup of society’s hypocrisies and privileges. Equally resonant for today’s audiences, the play shows the con man Tartuffe taking over a household right under the patriarch’s nose—unless reason prevails and the family can expose him.

Buy tickets for one of our seven performances.
