BLIND FAITH is a hilarious modern tribute to the classic French farces of Moliere, commissioned by Unicorn Theatre, written by Natalie & Talia Liccardello, and directed by Theodore Swetz.

The action takes place during a weekend retreat attended by the followers of Blind Faith, a pseudo religious, self-help organization, owned by the Purnelle Family. The weekend’s Guest Speaker is none other than Moliere himself, engaged by Blind Faith because of his expertise in romantic relationships, not to mention his celebrity status. Quickly, the Purnelles find that family and business do not mix. The result is a fast paced, hysterical confrontation of lies, deceit, romance, and desires.

Special Thanks to This Happy Breed & KC MOlière: 400 in 2022
