August Wilson was one of America's most celebrated playwrights, and Fences was arguably his most celebrated work. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama -- as well as Tony Awards for Best Play and, decades later, Best Revival of a Play -- Fences is a powerful drama that tells the story of Troy Maxson (portrayed by Carl Lumbly). A former star of Negro League Baseball who now makes a living as a garbage man in 1957, Maxson is a man consumed with frustration concerning the color barrier that kept him from being a success in Major League Baseball. As he struggles to provide for his family, their relationships -- infected by bitterness -- suffer. A truly significant American play, the New York Post once hailed it as "one of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theatre." Learn More

Marin Theatre Company presents the internationally acclaimed Dell’Arte Company’s visually spectacular production of Tartuffe, an adaptation of the classic comedy written by Moliere in the 1600s. Using masks, monkeys, music and its trademark physical comedy, Dell’Arte takes on Tartuffe (Michael Fields), a religious charlatan who takes over a family’s life until the tables are turned by virtue of his own excesses. Considered one of Moliere’s most provocative and timeless works, it riffs on the theme of religious hypocrisy while delving into the comical belief that our own values are the only right ones—and if only others would behave as we do, the world would be a much better place.
Tartuffe is directed by Guilio Cesare Perrone. The ensemble cast is rounded out by Deborah Taylor Barrera (Elmire), Adrian Mejia (Orgon, Flipotte), Dimiter D. Marinov (Cleante), Barbara Geary (Pernelle, Carina), David Ferney (Valere), Jackie Dandeneau (Mariane), Matthew Graham Smith (Damis, Loyal) and Keight Gleason (Dorine).
