Moliere's Tartuffe in a new translation by Ranjit Bolt directed by Joyce Maltby November 15 - December 8th Wednesdays thru Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. Sundays at 4:00 p.m. No performance on Thanksgiving One of Moliere's most famous comedies, Tartuffe is considered a classic of Western Theatre. First performed in 1664, it satirizes religious hypocrisy using some of the most memorable characters to take the stage. The title character, a wily opportunist and swindler, easily captivates aristocrat Orgon to the potential ruin of his wealth, position, and the virtues of his wife and daughter. It is only through the cunning intervention of his servants and family that Orgon is finally able to see through Tartuffe's plots.This entertaining story, excellently told, is sure to delight!
