Tartuffe, or The Impostor, or The Hypocrite
In a translation by Ranjit Bolt
Directed by Robert Scott Smith
Vice becomes virtue in Molière’s timeless satire of religious hypocrisy—or is it the other way around? Falling under the spell of sly con artist Tartuffe, the wealthy bourgeois Orgon risks his estate and his family to harbor the pious-seeming vagabond; but when their guest finally reveals his true colors, the household descends into chaos.
Ranjit Bolt’s dynamic, clever translation sees Molière’s dark comedy through a contemporary lens that explores how truth becomes undermined in the quest for power.
