The funniest comic masterpiece ever about how good people can be deceived by a dangerous hypocrite who only pretends to be virtuous! Orgon, the father of a normal family, forbids the joys and engagement wishes of his children in obedience to his cherished house guest, the righteous and puritanical “man of faith,” Tartuffe! What will happen when he discovers this so-called “godly man” has illicit interests in his own wife?
This production will be presented online combining live actors and recorded scenes, and delightfully incorporating the homespun techniques of Toy Theater, featuring simple flat puppets, in a playfully imaginative Zoom-scape.
