RUNNING TIME: 1 HOUR WITH NO INTERVAL
Lochhead’s un-P.C. rude & rhyming cut of Moliere’s French classic relocated to a Scotch living room of the 1940’s. Conman Tartuffe, with his perfect mark in Orgon, the gullible paterfamilias, is set to ruin them all. Unless the wiles of trophy-wife Elmire and the guid-hearted Dorine, the cheeky maid, can prevail? This play puts it on the table: Sex. Men and Women using it against each other… You have to laugh!

“Moliere himself might well have relished its pace, flair and earthy hilarity. A hilarious one-hour classic set in a Scotch livingroom.” (Scotsman)
“The cast give it pure laldy”. (Herald)
