A Staged Reading - Wausau, Stevens Point, Marshfield 
By George Orwell
Directed by Parke Fech

February 9-12, 2023

George Orwell’s satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere and has given the world at least one immortal phrase: “Some are more equal than others.” The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone must take the deposed farmer’s place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals. Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence.



Molière
Translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur
Directed by Elizabeth Parks 

March 3-5 & 9-11, 2023
Jenkins Theatre

Outraged by the empty flattery and dishonesty of men, Alceste declares he will speak only truth—no matter who it may offend. Philinte counsels him to temper his rashness, but Alceste claims he can no longer tolerate the two-faced conventions of the world. Ironically, Alceste is enamored with Celimène, whose malicious tongue and unceasing flirtations make her the embodiment of everything Alceste professes to loathe. Upon discovering Celimène’s scathing commentary on her lovers, Alceste rejects her affection and declares that he will renounce the world and seek a place where honesty can still flourish.
