Curtain rises on classic comedy

The University Players production of Tartuffe, the 1664 comic masterpiece by Molière, opened Thursday at Essex Hall Theatre.

The play is directed by drama alumnus Jim Warren, and has been an audience favourite for nearly three and a half centuries. With a soaring and beautiful set, and gorgeous period costumes, this will be a production you won’t want to miss.

University Players presents classic tour de force

University Players presents Molière’s classic comedy Tartuffe, February 7 to 10 and 13 to 17 at Essex Hall Theatre.

This is 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!
