Tartuffe, the consummate con man, hypocrite, and womanizer, meets his match under Molière's deft pen. A masterpiece of biting social commentary brilliantly enclosed in a swirl of witty verse, outrageous characters, and delightful machinations; you'll laugh and wince simultaneously as you hear how familiar this 17th century family sounds to our 21st century ears!
