The Tower Theatre
by Molière, translated by Ranjit Bolt
Directed by Gigi Robarts
Tartuffe, a con man, is on a serious mission - a devious religious fanatic who slithers his way into a wealthy family's trust, philandering and praying his way to the top. He breaks an engagement, hoodwinks the head of the family into signing away his fortune and attempts to seduce the mistress of the house - all in the name of piety!
Tartuffe is the original spiritual spin-artist in a comedy of manners which remains a timeless demonstration of the power of laughter to promote exploration of the deeper truths of life.
