Featuring a post-screening conversation with guests from the Huntington Theatre Company's production of Moliere's brilliant comedy Tartuffe, directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois.

When thief Gaston Monescu (Herbert Marshall) meets his true love in pickpocket Lily (Miriam Hopkins), they embark on a scam to rob lovely perfume company executive Mariette Colet (Kay Francis). But when Gaston becomes romantically entangled with Mme. Colet, their larcenous ruse is jeopardized and Gaston is forced to choose between two beautiful women.

Legendary director Ernst Lubitsch’s masterful touch is in full flower in Trouble in Paradise, a pinnacle of the sophisticated romantic comedy, loaded with sparkling dialogue, witty innuendo, and elegant comic invention. — Criterion Collection

After the screening of Trouble in Paradise, guests from the Huntington's new production of Tartuffe will discuss the interplay between these two classic farces.
