Wealthy Monsieur Orgon has welcomed Tartuffe, an evangelical fraud, into his home. Tartuffe threatens to marry Orgon’s daughter, seduces his wife, and steals his property from right under his nose. Tartuffe’s scandalous behavior is exposed in the nick of time, and Orgon learns a valuable universal lesson about trusting those who falsely present themselves as good men of God. The master of classic French comedy has created a saucy, sparkling confection that speaks to our times.
