‘Anarchic, irreverent and hysterically funny’ The Observer

Tartuffe is a beacon of piety and has his feet firmly under the table in the home of wealthy merchant, Orgon.

But the family smells a rat and amid the frills and frivolity of Seventeenth Century society, they hatch a cunning plan to outwit the wily deceiver before he brings their house crashing down…

The outstanding Capital of Culture 2008 hit Roger McGough’s “brilliant adaptation” (Independent) of Molière’s sublime comedy returns. Gemma Bodinetz’s “sparkling production” (Sunday Times) opens in Liverpool before a UK tour with English Touring Theatre.

Cast includes: Hiran Abeysekera, Joe Alessi, Eithne Browne, Simon Coates, Annabelle Dowler, Ilan Goodman, Rebecca Lacey, Emily Pithon, Alan Stocks & Colin Tierney .

 ‘there simply aren’t enough superlatives to express just how glorious this production is’ The Stage
