THEATRE: Tartuffe - Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble

12 July 2024

Season: July 12th - 28th, 2024

Title: Tartuffe

Presented By: Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble

Genre: Comedy/Drama

Synopsis: Enter the world of Orgon, a man seemingly blessed with wealth, influence, and a harmonious family. However, when he becomes enamoured with Tartuffe, a charming yet dubious spiritual leader, his life takes a tumultuous turn. Is Tartuffe a saintly figure or a cunning imposter? As the characters grapple with questions of greed, seduction, piety, and deceit, Molière's comedic genius shines through in this timeless satire. Originally performed in 1664 and swiftly banned thereafter, "Tartuffe" remains a scintillating exploration of human folly and hypocrisy.
