What can audiences today learn from a 400 year old playwright?

Mobile Molière:
The Long Path Players

An eccentric 17th-century roaming theatre troupe searches for a stage and an audience for a jumble of Molière’s “greatest hits”. But what happens when the most eccentric of them all, Molière himself, reaches the end of his path? UMKC Theatre’s MFA actors bring their riotous romp of a touring show to local schools, performing some of Molière’s most famous and hilarious scenes.

A 50-minute performance for middle and high school audiences
