Award-winning actress/playwright Chris Black enters the ring for a dramatic one-woman show in Tough, which is inspired by the life of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, who traveled coast-to-coast challenging people to fights. While Sullivan's background, rise to fame and decline motivate the performance, Black's interest also lies in what it means to be strong and how athletes and performers harness that "special something" to become extraordinary. Black opens the show by throwing her hat in the ring and announcing the rules of the game, all while enjoying some good whiskey. Don't miss this unique, gender-bending performance that mixes power and poignancy. 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).
