Tartuffe

The University of Utah Department of Theatre presents "Tartuffe" written by Molière in a translation by Ranjit Bolt, directed by Robert Scott Smith. Tartuffe, or The Impostor, or The Hypocrite.Vice becomes virtue in Molière’s timeless satire of religious hypocrisy—or is it the other way around? Falling under the spell of sly con artist Tartuffe, wealthy bourgeois Orgon risks his estate and his family to harbor the pious-seeming vagabond; but when their guest finally reveals his true colors, the household is thrown into chaos.Ranjit Bolt’s dynamic and clever translation looks at Molière’s dark comedy through a contemporary lens that explores how truth becomes blurred in the quest for power.
