Play Synopsis: Holy roller! Tartuffe has taken over Orgon's household. While he robs his host blind, and seduces the lady of the house in the name of the Almighty, the rest of the family must scramble to uncover his hypocrisy before it is too late. Originally written in the 16th century, the satire was so sharp that Moliere was forced to shoehorn in an additional scene showing Tartuffe's punishment at the hands of the authorities. Re-contextualized for contemporary times, this work has lost none of its bite.
