Orgon is a lucky man! He has a lovely wife, two devoted children and all the wealth a man could need. And now he’s found Tartuffe, a humble and pious, holy man who promises eternal salvation. Orgon’s family sees a different Tartuffe; a con man out to wed Orgon’s daughter, seduce his wife, and steal his fortune. When the family decides to end Tartuffe’s reign of terror they hatch a bold and hilarious plot to expose him, but he won’t go down without a fight! A comedy for the ages, Tartuffe mercilessly and mirthfully skewers hypocrites and the fools who believe in them.
Underwritten by Diana and Mike Kinsey
