Tartuffe

Directed by Jeff Soroka

Theatre Unleashed opens its 2014 season with one of the greatest and most controversial satires of all time, Tartuffe. The religious fraud Tartuffe has fooled the wealthy but naive Orgon, who is ready to award him his daughter’s hand in marriage. But the wily and wicked “imposter” has his sights set on even loftier goals, including seducing his host’s wife, ruining the family name and taking over the household. Molière’s signature work, using Ranjit Bolt’s daring and dynamite translation, is aggressively presented by classics master director Jeff Soroka, who explores in rapid-fire fashion the themes of obsession, control, gullibility, the absurdity of zealotry and above all, hypocrisy.
