TARTUFFE by Moliere, translation by Richard Wilbur
directed by Allison Heishman


This summer begins with a “Free Theatre in the Parks” production of Moliere’s comic masterpiece, TARTUFFE.  Moliere’s play pokes fun at both individual and societal moral smugness, and reveals (and revels in) the outrageousness of religious hypocrisy. Orgon, the head of a wealthy family, deceives himself into believing that Tartuffe, a seemingly devout, but actually rapacious vagrant is, in fact, a man of impeccable morality and goodness. But Tartuffe is not heaven sent, and all hell breaks loose when Tartuffe sets his sights on Orgon’s fortune…and his wife. The fun heats up once the family, and the family maid, put a plan in place to prove Tartuffe to be a fraud.
