Exploring the way in which people are easily manipulated by symbols of power and honeyed words, "Tartuffe" is one of the “French Shakespeare’s” most famous work. The story: a wily opportunist, who affects sanctity and gains complete control over Orgon, a rich bourgeois who in his middle years has become a bigot and a prude.
“Sylvaine Strike and her extraordinary cast have made such magic with this production that I am filled up with how wonderful, mad, exciting and inspiring, not to mention completely hilarious, brilliant theatre can be.”
Megan Furniss, WeekendSpecial
“It’s always surprising when a play written in 1664 is just as relevant today as it was then. Brilliantly directed by Sylvaine Strike, Molière’s Tartuffe is just that. It’s at once charming and chilling, with physical theatre so subtly incorporated that, by the end, you feel like the human condition is light on its feet.”
