Written by Moliere (adapted by Bill Irwin and Mark O’Donnell)

Directed by Matthew Byron Cassi

Scapin, adapted by Bill Irwin and Mark O’Donnell from Moliere, is based on the Commedia dell’Arte archetypical Scapino character.  Scapin constantly lies and tricks people to get ahead. He is an arrogant, pompous man who acts as if nothing were impossible for him. However, he is also a diplomatic genius. He manages to play the other characters off of each other very easily, and yet manages to keep his overall goal — to help the young couples — in sight.

Study Guide


"Fast paced and twisty, Classic Theatre’s staging of ’Scapin’ is a great bug carnival ride of a show. The show fuses dozens of pop culture references with Moliere’s tale of a scheming servant named Scapin. Cassi and his cast have fully embraced the piece’s commedia dell’arte approach, creating a fully engaging, breathlessly funny show that begs for repeat viewings. The show is an absolute blast."
