An original contemporary adaptation of this comic tale of the machinations of a rogue.

“Scapin takes the best of both French farce and Italian commedia and rolls it into a riotous satire of contemporary mores and politics. The effect is breathtaking… 5 stars!”
—Denis Armstrong, Ottawa Sun

“It’s very smart, it’s energetic, it’s entertaining…the performances are impressive…Laurie Steven’s direction, it’s sure footed and it’s imaginative and the result is really a marvelous evening of theatre.”
—Tom McSorley, CBC Radio

“A post-modern urban Commedia dealing with contemporary issues: illegal immigration, drugs, gangs, assassins…a non-stop whirlwind of breathless energy…excellent performances…you’ve got to go and see it.”
—Alvina Ruprecht, CBC Radio

“Joy is evident in every facet of Odyssey’s Scapin”
—Bruce Deachman, Ottawa Citizen
