Photos: First Look at the Cast of Shakespeare & Company's LES FAUX PAS

The work of Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, better known to us as Molière, returns to the Rose Footprint Theatre (the Company produced Tartuffe on the Footprint last season) with a new adaptation of one of his sauciest plays, Les Faux Pas: or The Counter Plots. Director Jenna Ware, who also adapted the piece, pulls out all of the stops with this riotously funny play. Featuring a cast of 11 new-comers and Company favorites Jenne Jadow and Dana Harrison Les Faux Pas: or The Counter Plots kicks off the Bankside Festival. Press Opening is Saturday, July 6 at 5:30PM. Scroll down for a first look at the cast!

CAST: Company artist Jennie M. Jadow (The Learned Ladies 2012, As You Like It 2011) returns as Mascarille, her side-splitting role from our 2010 production of The Amorous Quarrel. She is joined by Caroline Calkins (currently Riotous Youth faculty and in A Midsummer Night's Dream at Edith Wharton's Home, The Mount; King Lear, The Venetian Twins), Dana Harrison (The Liar 2013, The Learned Ladies 2012, and As You Like It 2011), Sean Kazarian (Macbeth S&Co. NE Tour, Julius Caesar S&Co. NE Tour,Romeo and Juliet S&Co. NE Tour), Marcus Kearns (The Liar), Justin Weaks (The Venetian Twins 2011) and an equally talented ensemble of 9 other actors-many of whom have come up through the ranks of S&Co.'s lauded Education Program including, Joseph Ahmed (Riotous Youth faculty, Shakespeare & Young Company alumnus), Alexandra Allen (Education Program Apprentice), Kiki Bertocci (Riotous Youth and Fall Festival faculty and former Fall Festival participant), Max Dakin (Shakespeare & Young Company participant), and JoJo MacDonald (Shakespeare & Young Company past participant).

Multi-talented Company member and composer for Les Faux Pas, Andy Talen (Talen can be seen onstage this summer in both Love's Labour's Lost and Mother Courage), is no stranger to the popular Rose shows. He has collaborated with Ware on both The Amorous Quarrel and The Venetians Twins. With a recipe that includes pirates, clowns, sword fights, food fights, and hilariously-failed schemes, there is something for everyone in this madcap jaunt.
