Tartuffe poster featuring a man in a black maskBy​ Molière

Directed by: Jim Warren

Performances: March 12-15, 2008

Venue: Theatre of the Arts, Modern Languages Building

The serpent-like hypocrite Tartuffe has entrenched himself firmly in the home of wealthy Parisian patriarch Orgon who, charmed by his seeming piety, is duped into bequeathing to the impostor all of his earthly belongings, including his money, his house, his daughter, and (almost) his wife. Everyone in the Orgon family sees through the scoundrel Tartuffe's machinations, but it will take a great deal of courage and imagination on the part of his wife to save the family from eviction and to keep the innocent from scandal and prison. Performed in a contemporary translation by Ranjit Bolt, Tartuffe was directed by Toronto’s Soulpepper Theatre Company actor/director Jim Warren.
