Event details

Tartuffe group rehearsal shot

We are delighted to announce that our final year BA students will be presenting an early modern classic from Moliere, one of the great masters of comedy.

Tartuffe tells the story of the havoc wreaked upon a family when the eponymous character worms his way into the affections of Orgon and is invited into their household.  Hilarity ensues when Tartuffe's religious fervour turns out to be a facade for some decidedly unholy motivations.  The students are working with a lively and accessible translation of the text by Ranjit Bolt.

Tickets can be purchased on-line
