Winter Play - Ti-Jean and His Brothers |
A Caribbean Folktale By Derek Walcott
Thank you for coming!
Tells the story of three brothers who live in poverty with their mother in the rainforest in the West Indies. One day, the family strikes a deal with the devil: if they can outwit him and make him experience anger, he will give them all they need. If not, he will have the brothers for dinner. Although the family prays to God daily, they make the deal. As each of the brothers attempts to beat the devil through his own skill, Ti-Jean makes use of what God has surrounded him with: nature and his mother's wisdom.

Tartuffe - and All That Jazz is a new adaptation of Moliere's classic French comedy. We are proud to be presenting the world premiere of this new version, set in Roaring Twenties St. Louis against the backdrop of prohibition, the jazz age and fundamentalist/modernist controversies. Like the original, this version features rhymed verse dialogue and a plot centered on a religious conman named Tartuffe who bilks the wealthy but gullible Orgon and tries to seduce his wife.
