Talk Is Free Theatre

In a comic whirlwind of high style, La Bête tells the story of Elomire, a 17th century French playwright, and his touring acting troupe who have come to lead the high life due to the patronage of the fickle Prince of Conti. Sparks fly when Valere, a swaggering braggart with delusions of artistic grandeur, becomes the Prince’s choice to join Elomire’s troupe. It is a battle of wits and witticisms as the two face off in this outrageous commentary on the nature of art and the artist in society.

“Nadajewski gives a virtuoso performance…” –Christopher Hoile, Stage Door Review

“Dylan Trowbridge finely directs this production with pristine class and utmost wit.” –Joe Szekeres, Our Theatre Voice

“Talk Is Free Theatre is a place that does this kind of work, beautifully…” –Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter
