The Abbey Theatre: Tartuffe – Text to Performance

Dates:  Various

Arts in Junior Cycle and the Abbey Theatre are delighted to present Tartuffe: Text to Performance. Open to teachers from all subject disciplines, Tartuffe: Text to Performance consists of an in-person workshop, a performance of Tartuffe and a follow-up online workshop.

In a new adaptation by Frank McGuinness, Molière’s 17th century classic has been updated to an Irish setting and will embrace the comedy’s humour and farce in which the villainous Tartuffe shocks and enthrals with his deceptive powers.

A key part of Tartuffe: Text to Performance includes attending a performance of the Abbey Theatre’s production of Tartuffe, directed by Abbey Theatre artistic director, Caitríona McLaughlin.

Tartuffe: Text to Performance offers opportunities to:

  •    explore how a play in performance communicates its message to an audience.
  •    collaborate, share ideas and reflect in a safe, supportive environment.
  •    experience practical and creative methodologies that may be used in professional classroom practice.

As Tartuffe is an Abbey Theatre touring production, Tartuffe: Text to Performance  is being they offered in Donegal and Cork.

Participants will register for ONE of these locations.
