About this event:
Experience a madcap night of life in the theatre with two classic behind-the-scenes comedies, THE CRITIC and THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND.
First, playwright and adaptor Jeffrey Hatcher returns with a fresh take on Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s 18th-century romp THE CRITIC, a whirlwind comedy about bad theatre, worse playwrights…and, worst of all, the critics.
The laughs continue with Tom Stoppard’s absurdist tour-de-farce THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND, an ingenious play-within-a-play in which two critics find themselves caught up as unsuspecting suspects while they watch a classic 1950s-style whodunit in the style of Agatha Christie. STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn brings together an ensemble cast to take on both shows—and multiple characters—for a night of chaos and comedy.
