Trickster of Seville

The Trickster of Seville by Tirso de Molina is the first written version of the famous Don Juan legend. Company member Ravyn Jazper-Hawke has created a mash-up using characters and scenes from Moliere and Goldoni adaptations, to construct a family-friendly comedy for Masque Alfresco's 2016 Summer Park Tour. The play is directed by Fayra Teeters, Ken Dembo stars as Don Juan, with seven other men and women playing over twenty roles. As usual in commedia plays, the servants know more than their masters, engage in hysterical comedic antics, and generally save the day. Masque Alfresco promises their renowned use of slapsticks, broad physical comedy schtick, and colorful period costumes. The 2016 Summer Park Tour will be laughingly wigged-out!

Everyone is invited to enjoy the event: Bring blankets, lawn chairs, picnics and your funny bone!
