To Buy Tickets:

Tartuffe is Molière’s most famous comedy. The play is set in the home of the wealthy Monsieur Orgon–into whose household the imposter Tartuffe has insinuated himself, posing as Orgon’s spiritual guide and moral censor. Tartuffe attempts to marry Orgon’s daughter, seduce his wife, and steal his estate. Will Tartuffe be exposed before his machinations succeed?
