Delightfully detestable, few characters are more fun to hate than Tartuffe, Molière's slimiest -- and most sublime -- creation. With the tenacity and morals of a bedbug, Tartuffe has infested the home of Orgon, a prominent local gentleman. Totally taken by Tartuffe's phony piety, Orgon is blind to the conman's outrageous designs on his fortune, his daughter and his wife, Elmire. Only Elmire's good sense and the aid of the family's sassy maid can expose Tartuffe and save Orgon from self-destruction. But will their efforts be enough to thwart Tartuffe's plots? Generation Theatre performs an updated version of Molière's fast-paced, seductive satire that will leave you guessing until the very end.
