Celebrate STC’s 25th Anniversary with an uproarious World Premiere comedy from the creative team behind STC’s hit production of The Liar. Broadway playwright David Ives returns with The Heir Apparent, an adaptation of Jean-François Regnard’s 1708 masterpiece, directed by Artistic Director Michael Kahn. Eraste desperately wants to marry Isabelle, but first he needs to secure an inheritance from his miserable old uncle, Geronte. Geronte won’t make it easy for Eraste, though, as he’s bequeathed his money to distant relatives. Can Eraste’s resourceful servant save the day with his powers of disguise and his quick wit? Love, family and intrigue join to make this a hilarious French farce that shouldn’t be missed. The Heir Apparent was commissioned through the generous support of The Beech Street Foundation.This is the 10th mainstage production originating from our ReDiscovery Series. The ReDiscovery Series is made possible through the generosity of donors Ann K. Morales and Jean and David Grier.
