Scapin

In this adaptation of Moliere’s Les Fourberies de Scapin, the wily, witty servant Scapin helps young lovers out of a jam and seeks revenge on his master, staying one step ahead of trouble all the way. In tangled exploits, Scapin and his friends careen (often literally!) into blind corners, zany disguises, and mistaken identities. With live accompaniment by local pianist Art Wheeler—no stranger to silent film music, having tickled the ivories for many local screenings—the characters enthusiastically, often clumsily, scheme, stumble, and plot their way toward happy endings, led by Scapin himself.
