With a Tony-Award winning Broadway revival in 1978 and made into a movie that same year, this neoclassical satirical comedy centers on a wealthy man being duped by a penniless vagrant.
When the vagrant Tartuffe disguises himself as a virtuous and pious man, he is able to get himself into the good graces of the wealthy Orgon and his mother Mme. Pernelle. They take Tartuffe into their home and promise him Orgon’s daughter’s hand in marriage (even as he secretly attempts to seduce Orgon’s wife, Elmire). Though everyone else in the family sees through Tartuffe’s ruse, they are unable to convince Orgon that Tartuffe is anything by what he says.
The Village Playhouse is excited to present an enhanced staged reading of this classic play.
