Written to coincide with the 2016 Presidential election, this contemporary reworking of Moliere’s classic comedy and cautionary tale of frauds, cheats, scoundrels and interloper is set in the home of a wealthy businessman who’s duped into supporting the political campaign of an entirely unscrupulous charlatan. Over 350 years have passed since Moliere penned Tartuffe, and yet it remains one of the most well-known and often-produced comedies in the Western canon. This is partly due to its potent afterlife—it’s ability to resonate with our present-day anxieties.
