The story takes place in the home of the wealthy Orgon, where Tartuffe - a fraud and a pious imposter - has insinuated himself. He succeeds magnificently in winning the respect and devotion of the head of the house, and then tries to marry his daughter and seduce his wife. Denounced and banned by the French government when first produced in the 1660s, Molière’s devilish comedy is perfectly ripe for our times.
