A world classic kicks off Lakeshore Players Dorval’s 53rd season.
Spiritual con men have been around as long as spirituality itself. And no one has captured the comedy of a spiritual charlatan infiltrating a royal court better than Molière. With translation by David Nicholson, Lakeshore Players Dorval brings this classic to the stage beginning Nov. 2 and running until Nov. 11. Directed by Corey Castle, this modern interpretation is sure to amuse and delight audiences of all ages. With romance, intrigue and outrageous comedy, this is a performance not to miss.
