OPENING TONIGHT: V&PA presents Moliere’s ‘Tartuffe’

Posted by Tina Zlody | Posted on Mar 20, 2013

Translated by Richard Wilbur
Directed by Angela BrazilA con man, Tartuffe, deceives a wealthy gentleman, Orgon, tries to seduce Orgon’s wife, Elmire, and finally gets Orgon to sign over the family estate. Orgon’s family, friends, and servants all try to unmask and get rid of Tartuffe. A grab for power cloaked in piety and religion? A misuse of religion in the avoidance of personal responsibility? People so caught up in their own excesses they don’t notice what’s going on until it’s too late? Sounds entirely contemporary and all too familiar, though Moliere’s brilliant satire was written in 1669.
