Tartuffe By Molière
Directed and translated by Anne-Lise Vassoille and Jane Jones

Edward Alleyn Theatre - Dulwich College
Wednesday 10th April to Saturday 13th April 2019

This spring, The Dulwich Players are taking the stage at the Edward Alleyn Theatre for a new version of Tartuffe. Hypocrisy, delusion, pride, betrayal… What’s not to laugh about in Moliere’s classic comedy? We are in Paris in the early 1960s, at a time when the advent of television and rock’n’roll music is at odds with traditions, religion and, well, good old manners. George, a wealthy property owner and war hero, has blindly welcomed Tartuffe, a seemingly religious and well-intended man, into his home, to the horror of his children and second wife. Now George wants Tartuffe to become part of the family and marry his obedient teenage daughter, Marianne. Can the falsely pious man be unmasked, and his true intentions revealed? How much will the family have to endure under Tartuffe’s powerful and inexplicable influence? And will they succeed in opening George’s eyes before it is too late? Come find out all that happens in a comedy that would be tragic if it wasn’t so funny…
