About Tartuffe

Devious Tartuffe charms his way into Orgon’s household and schemes to marry his daughter, seduce his wife, and run off with the family’s fortune.

Peter DuBois“This production of Tartuffe is going to be everything you expect from Molière, complete with a spin on period fashion and the brilliantly comic possibilities of staging this classic play for a modern audience. Boston is going to see 2017 alive onstage within the framework of a 17th century farce, and the result will be satirical, smart, and a gut-buster.” — Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois
