Synopsis
Bell Shakespeare presents
TARTUFFE

By the time he's reached middle age, Orgon is the toast of Sydney's high society. He has a lucrative career, a plush home and a trophy wife - but he feels spiritually bankrupt.

Religious guru Tartuffe appears to have the solution, and he moves into Orgon's home to offer salvation. The trouble is, Orgon's family don't want to be saved by Tartuffe; they can see he is a hypocrite and a fraud. He also proves to be a wily adversary, adept at getting out of the tightest of corners. Tartuffe exploits Orgon's blind faith, deceiving his host into betrothing him to his daughter, before making a play for his wealth and his wife. The family decide that desperate times call for desperate measures and hatch an audacious plot to expose Tartuffe. But time is running out and the arch manipulator has even more dirty tricks up his sleeve...

The chance to see Molière's classic seventeenth century play Tartuffe only comes along once in a blue moon - and the chance to see Justin Fleming's sparkling Australian translation makes this new production extra special. Like his translation of The School For Wives, Fleming's script is devilish fun, playing lyrical tricks on the audience and breathing new life into one of theatre's most loved (and loathed) villains. This promises to be a thoroughly modern night of riotous entertainment.
