Tartuffe or the Imposter by Molière

March 25-29, 2020
Turner Studio Theatre

Directed by Rebecca Harries.

Banned from stages in France, beginning in 1664, and Nouvelle-France in 1693, the first play to be banned in Québec, Molière’s most famous and most popular play could be offered as proof that controversy breeds success. Widely regarded as a satire of religious hypocrisy, Tartuffe or the Intruder also questions paternal power – what happens when the fate of many depends upon one man, who follows his personal feelings and ignoring reason and the rule of law; Orgon the father of the family becomes enamored of an Imposter.

The second year drama class sets out to answer these questions, embodying Molière’s vivid characters in a contemporary take on a funny, and at times nightmarish, classic.

Good for Grades 9-12 & Cegep.
