L.A.'s acclaimed home of the classics, A Noise Within, stages Tartuffe, one of Moliere's best loved -- and most clever -- comedies. Few scoundrels are as roguish, charming or hilarious as the titular 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 damaging. This translation of the 1669 original retains all of its witty relevance, and was written by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and U.S. Poet Laureate Richard Wilbur in 1963. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Young Eben Cabot's keen and greedy eye is on the farm. His father's voluptuous new bride Abby has her craven eye on Eben. As they square off to battle for the coveted plot of land, irresistible sexual tension mingles with hate to explosive effect. America's premiere playwright Eugene O'Neill spins a masterful salute to the combustible essence of great Greek drama.
The cast includes William Dennis Hunt (Ephraim Cabot), Jason Dechert (Eben), Monette Magrath (Abbie Putnam), Stephen Rockwell (Peter), Christopher Fairbanks (Simeon).
