by Moliere

Translated by Richard Wilbur

Directed by Paul Draper

An outrageous classic comedy about hypocrisy, religion, and how appearances can be deceiving.

Thursday, April 23, 2020 to Saturday, May 2, 2020
Evert B. Person Theatre

If there is a simple message to Moliere's Tartuffe, it would be appearances can be deceiving. Tartuffe is a wanderer whom the credulous Orgon takes into his home. Tartuffe impresses Orgon with his devout religious and moral beliefs and behavior. As a result of his carefully constructed persona, Tartuffe becomes adored by Orgon, who begins giving his life away to the imposter.  Can Orgon’s family save his soul from the outrageous Tartuffe?
