Molière wrote Tartuffe in 1664 and almost immediately following its first performance it was censored by King Louis XIV. It is the world’s most famous scoundrel’s story. The comic genius Molière weaves a tale of naiveté, religious hypocrisy and the triumphant victory of good over evil – and all in rhyming couplets in this dazzling new adaptation/translation by Amlin Gray. This famous farce is a cautionary tale told with lightning-quick wit, complete with star-crossed lovers, a badgering grandma and a plot that could be ripped from the headlines – or a Saturday night comedy show.
