Tartuffe (The Hypocrite) at New Lyric Theatre

VENUE: NEW LYRIC THEATRE

This revival of Molière's classic 17th Century satire is divine intervention gone mad!

When Tartuffe, a supposed man of the cloth, entwines himself into wealthy Orgon's life, it isn't long before Orgon won't make a decision without him. The relationship initially appears to be harmless, however when Orgon begins promising his possessions, his home, even his daughter to Tartuffe, Orgon's family resolves to expose Tartuffe for the swindler he is.

Filled with biting satire, this adaptation set in today's Australia skewers hypocrisy - along with religion, sex, ambition and marriage - to uproarious effect.
