Nick Offerman (“Parks & Recreation”) stars as larger-than-life character Ignatius J. Reilly, the Don Quixote of the French Quarter. He’s overweight, arrogant, eccentric, and still living with his mother in New Orleans in the 1960s. Adapted from the cult classic, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Confederacy of Dunces is a hilarious wild ride, filled with colorful characters and comic misadventures.

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.

A Confederacy of Dunces is an iconic novel with an incredible cult following. It’s a privilege to work with playwright Jeffrey Hatcher, the brilliant and profoundly funny Nick Offerman, and our friend director David Esbjornson, and to be the first to share this exciting new play with Boston audiences.”— Peter DuBois
“Adapting John Kennedy Toole’s A Confederacy of Dunces into a play has been like wrestling Ignatius Reilly to the stage. The book is famously picaresque, episodic and digressive, but the digressions are often the point. What I think we've arrived at is a play that focuses on the characters – Ignatius, his mother Mrs. Reilly, Burma Jones, Myrna Minkoff – without losing any of the book's color and atmosphere and humor.”— Jeffrey Hatcher
