Molière in the Park is an antiracist theater organization. Our mission is to bring free, contemporary and inclusive productions of Molière's comedies to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, annually.
Brooklyn's New Mainstay
We believe theater performed in public spaces and free for all has the power to lift spirits, create empathy and unite communities. Molière in the Park was born out of the desire to meet Brooklynites in their backyard where all will feel invited to take part, and benefit from thought provoking and entertaining theater.
Molière is considered one of the world’s greatest French satirists and we aim to make his work a vital part of Brooklyn’s diverse cultural landscape. In style and content, Molière’s plays capture Brooklyn: funny, gritty, progressive, disruptive, and embracing of all types of people. Through the lens of his stories, we see ourselves and others as imperfect and intertwined humans. Much like Prospect Park’s unifying draw to Brooklynites, Molière’s plays unite us and point to our commonalities rather than our differences. Molière in the Park is a celebration of Brooklyn’s unique blend of diversity, innovation, and inclusion.
