ABOUT THE SHOW

A biting satire aimed at religious hypocrisy. Banned in Paris in 1667, it is one of French playwright Moliere’s most famous comedies. When the kind, yet dim, Orgon invites the religious zealot known as Tartuffe into his home, he has no idea that he has accepted a snake into his den. While Tartuffe acts like a kind minister, he is — in fact — a con man plotting to rob Orgon of everything he holds dear. While Orgon becomes hopelessly entranced by Tartuffe, his family rallies to expose Tartuffe for the scoundrel he is. Will they be able to save the hapless Orgon from Tartuffe’s clutches? It may take an act of fake seduction — and an obvious Deus ex Machina — to help defeat this lascivious hypocrite. “A classic gem. Laugh-out-loud funny,” says The New York Times.
