Tartuffe, or The Impostor

A biting satire and the arrogance of language. Masterful acting and sophisticated scenography. A fresh look at the masterpiece in a new translation by Jerzy Radziwiłowicz.

The bitter comedy of Molière was so infuriating to its contemporary audience, bigots in particular, that Louis XIV forbade its performance for 5 years. Jacques Lassalle portrays 17th-century France. A dimmed light fills stylish interiors and illuminates elegant period costumes. But it is actors who are the most important – by making an audience laugh, they expose insincerity, scheming and cruelty. The story of the demonic liar and hypocrite turns out to be still relevant.
