Tartuffe

5535 S. Ellis, Chicago, 60637 | directions
773-753-4472
By Molière
Translated by Richard Wilbur
Directed by Charles Newell

A devilish comedy about the art of deception and the price of misplaced faith, Moliere’s Tartuffe reveals a tale as outrageous as it is insightful.  When the cunning imposter Tartuffe wields a pretense of piety to capture the imagination of aging family-man Orgon, the scoundrel succeeds in insinuating himself into the patriarch’s home, throwing Orgon’s family into utter chaos. As Orgon’s foolish infatuation with Tartuffe’s fraudulent religious fervor grows, the depth of Tartuffe’s deception turns dangerous. Artistic Director Charles directs the French classic Tartuffe with a provocative contemporary approach that will illicit deep laughter of recognition.
