July 8,9 15,16,17 22,23 29,30,31 2016 (Preview July 7 & Matinees July 17 & 31) Tartuffe is one of Molière's most masterful and most popular plays. Its central character is a rich bourgeois named Orgon, who in middle age has become a bigot and prude. By affecting sanctity, Tartuffe, a wily opportunist and swindler, gains complete ascendancy over Orgon, who not only takes over his fortune but offers his daughter in marriage to his "spiritual" master. Only when he actually witnesses Tartuffe's attempt to seduce his wife does Orgon come to his senses.
