Written by Dominic Power & Andrew Hilton, after Molière
Directed by Andrew Hilton
In 2010 stf collaborated with Bristol Old Vic in a revival of Tony Harrison’s magnificent version of Molière’s The Misanthrope. Now, in this co-production with Tobacco Factory Theatres, it brings back the French comic master for the première of an even more freewheeling adaptation, this time of the most performed play in the history of French classical theatre.
Tartuffe, Molière’s master of self-invention, is now alive and on the make in present-day London. A credulous government minister is duped into surrendering his family’s wealth – and very nearly his wife and daughter – to one of drama’s greatest conmen.
This radical new rendering is by the stf team whose versions of The Comedy of Errors, Two Gentlemen of Verona and All’s Well That Ends Well have delighted audiences in Bristol and around the UK. It promises to be a fabulously comic counterpoint to Shakespeare’s great tragedy of credulousness and deceit to round off stf’s eighteenth spring season at Tobacco Factory Theatres.
