TARTUFFE by Moliere
Free Admission - Rain or Shine!
HYPOCRITE! IMPOSTER! LIAR! CHEAT!
Another political debate? No, just the cries that surround the main character in this summer’s outdoor production of Moliere’s TARTUFFE. It's almost impossible not to lean in to our current political turmoil when thinking about Tartuffe. Questions like, 'Who can do you trust?' 'What do you believe?' swirl around us and they are the same questions Moliere asks in this remarkable comedy.
While Moliere's comic masterpiece is both timeless and relevant to our times, Director Allison Heishman sets our Tartuffe in the materialistic 1980s, a time rife with religious zealotry, Reagan conservatism and colorful pop rock music.
