The Phoenix College Department of Theatre & Film proudly presents Tartuffe. In his famous comedy, Molière relates the story of an attempt by an irreclaimable hypocrite to destroy the domestic happiness of a citizen who, charmed by his seeming piety, has received him as a prominent guest. Beneath a pious facade, Tartuffe is a schemer intent on securing Orgon’s fortune and his daughter’s hand in marriage. Will Tartuffe be rewarded with riches or will the slippery hypocrite get the comeuppance he richly deserves?
The script is translated in charming rhyming couplets, and the play will be presented in 17th century French-style settings and costumes.
