TART, the gayest club in town, is in trouble as its family is under siege by the moral crusader Tartuffe. Now this family of friends, lovers, and drag performers unite to save one of their own, Orgon, from Tartuffe’s “salvation” in this adaptation of Molière’s iconic French comedy that’s filled with rhyming couplets, slapstick, and drag numbers.

Racism will be mocked, racists shunned, and stereotypes exposed in this humorous exploration of what it's like to be mixed race, deal with stereotypes, and find your place in the world. Inspired by playwright Duck Washington's own experiences, this mix of story-telling and sketch comedy will move you to buoyant laughter and deep thoughts as it examines concepts that are always more than just black-and-white.

If you liked the movie Hidden Figures, you won’t want to miss this “luminously beautiful play” that will change how you look at both the heavens and the earth.
