The Lark Theater presents Tartuffe or The Hypocrite from the French National Theater

Presented by The Lark Theater

Tartuffe or the Hypocrite (new production) by Moliere. Directed by Ivo van Hove
Cast: the Troupe and the actors of the Académie de la Comédie-Française
In French with English subtitles

In his quest for Christian perfection, the wealthy Orgon has welcomed the devout Tartuffe into his home to be a spiritual guide to the entire household. But unable to resist temptation himself, Tartuffe falls in love with Orgon’s wife. Caught in the act of confessing his desire to the beautiful Elmire, he only escapes at the cost of a descent into hypocrisy, driving the family to the brink of implosion...

Did you think you already knew Tartuffe? The director, Ivo van Hove, has us discover the original version, censored in 1664 by the King the day after the premiere and therefore only performed once in its history.
