Generation TheatreThrough Mar 13th
Generation Theatre presents a new production of Moliere’s classic comedy “Tartuffe.” The performance features a new English translation of “Moliere” by Generation Theatre’s Artistic Director R. David Valayre, who also directs this production.
First performed in 1664, “Tartuffe, or The Impostor, or The Hypocrite” follows the antics of the title character, an obvious fraud and con man who insinuates himself into a prosperous family. Some family members admire and trust him while others scheme to expose his dishonorable intentions. Hilarious misunderstandings and double-crosses ensue as Tartuffe struggles to maintain his position.
