Vice becomes virtue in Moliere’s hilarious exploration of power and hypocrisy. By taking the homeless and holy-seeming Tartuffe under his roof, the wealthy bourgeois Orgon thinks he is harboring a pillar of piety. But in fact Orgon is the one who has been taken in – by the ruthless scoundrel. With Orgon determined to marry his daughter to Tartuffe – and blind to the latter’s lecherous design on his wife – it’s up to the rest of the household to expose Tartuffe as the masterful con artist he is.
