Salon Series 2015-2016

The cornerstone of TACT’s programming and the exclusive domain of our Subscribing Members, the Salon Series brings you four plays in fully rehearsed, script-in-hand presentations in the distinctive TACT style.

This season the series runs amok - literally! - as we scan through four centuries of riotous comedy full of overarching egos, blundering buffoons, gullible good guys, and murderous old maids. Proving, once again, that human nature never really changes all that much - no matter what the century - and humor is something that transcends the boundaries of time and place.

The Imaginary Invalid by Molière
She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith
The Magistrate by Arthur Wing Pinero
Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring

This year we will also be bringing you something completely new: a TUESDAY EVENING performance option. So, please check out the new night and our new schedule. and join us as we delve into the twistedly funny minds of Molière, Goldsmith, Pinero and Kesselring in TACT’s 2015/16 Salon Series of Four Centuries of Comedy! Join our artists for our wine receptions at each performance, or at one of our Talk-Backs with the cast after the matinees.

For a dedicated hypochondriac, what could be better than a doctor for a son-in-law?

 Argan is sick.  Really.  Dreadful new symptoms keep popping up and on top of all that his medical bills are outrageous!  With his daughter coming of age, it’s all too much for a weak old man to bear.  Something must be done – like marry his daughter to a doctor so he can get free medical care for life!  What could possibly go wrong with such a perfect plan?

Tres excité, plein d’esprit, e un joyeaux formidable! Moliere c’est un genie!
