Molière’s most popular and wickedly funny play of deception, hypocrisy and false morality.  Tartuffe masquerades as a pious man of the cloth while working to swindle the gullible Orgon out of his fortune, daughter, and reputation. But everyone else in the household smells a rat. When Tartuffe is threatened with exposure, he ups both the ante and the hilarity in this laugh-out-loud comedy.


This production runs approximately two hours and five minutes, including one intermission.


This production contains very brief, bare-bottom nudity.
