Banned in Paris in 1664, Tartuffe is one of Moliere's best loved -- and most clever -- comedies. It's also the play that help put South Coast Repertory on the map more than three centuries later. Few scoundrels are as roguish, charming or hilarious as Tartuffe, an impostor who insinuates himself into the home of Orgon and his family, quickly throwing the entire household into chaos. As Orgon's infatuation with his guest and his phony piety grows, Tartuffe's deception threatens to turn downright destructive in this beloved comic masterpiece. Learn More
