“Tartuffe” is one of Molière ’s funniest and most frequently performed plays. Richard Wilbur translated the text and composed the rhymed couplets for this edition. The play centers around Orgon, a well-to-do man who has been deceived by Tartuffe, a con artist who is posing as a humble priest. Orgon extols the virtues of Tartuffe even as he is swindled out of his fortune, his family and even his home. With nothing left to lose, Orgon discovers the truth about Tartuffe.
Dr. Anna Filippo, chair of the theatre department and assistant professor of theatre at Shorter College, will direct this performance.
