Tartuffe claims to be so virtuous that every form of pleasure is an abomination. Orgon, a rich merchant, is completely duped by the scam and plans to give Tartuffe his fortune, his house and finally hit daughter! This is, until Orgon’s wife strips the con man bare in this raucous new translation of the classic comedy.
