Tarfuffe performances postponed until 2021

March 16, 2020

To our valued audience,

La Troupe des Anciens has succeeded in overcoming many seemingly insurmountable difficulties since its inception in 1969, but it is now facing an invincible adversary in COVID-19.

It is with deep regret that after spending many weeks on preparing for the performance of Tartuffe, we have had to postpone it to 2021. We promise you a production that will make the waiting worthwhile.

Those who have already bought tickets will of course be fully refunded.

All members of the Troupe are most grateful for your support throughout the years.
