Presented by the Court Theatre, a devilish comedy about the art of deception and the price of misplaced faith, Moliere?sTartuffe 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 Newell directs the French classic Tartuffe with a provocative contemporary approach that will elicit deep laughter of recognition.
