“What! Will you find no difference between hypocrisy and genuine devoutness?”
A hilarious tour de force by the 17th century master of comedy! Tartuffe is a holy man who dazzles Orgon with his piety, preying on Orgon’s trust and duping him into giving him everything he owns. But Tartuffe hasn’t pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes − the rest of the family sees him for what he is. Will this family be able to save themselves? Their antics while trying to get Orgon to see the truth will leave you on the floor laughing!
Running Time: Approximately two hours, including one 15-minute intermission
