Tartuffe

Jan 17, 2018

The Fall drama production is Tartuffe by Moliere, to be directed by Aaron Krogman. 

Tartuffe is an old French play (written in 1664) but its wit and insight are timeless. 

Orgon's household is thrown into turmoil when he invites a vagrant posing as a poius clergyman to live with them. Orgron and his aging mother fall completely under Tartuffe's spell, but the rest of the family see through him. When Orgon tells his daughter Marianne that he will marry her off the fraud, they enlist the help of the maid Dorine to expose him.
