This revival of Moliere’s classic 17th Century satire is divine intervention gone mad!
Orgon is a wealthy man attempting to come to terms with middle age. Fortunately for him, and much to the dismay of his family, he meets Tartu?e – a supposed man of the cloth. Though everyone else can see Tartu?e for the fraud he really is, Orgon becomes obsessed with him, and 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 Tartu?e, Orgon’s family resolves to expose Tartu?e for the swindler he is.
Filled with biting satire, this adaptation of thumping English verse by Justin Fleming will keep you enthralled with its Australian vernacular and subversive wit.
