Condemned and banned for five years in Molière’s day, Tartuffe is a satire on religious hypocrisy. Tartuffe worms his way into Orgon’s household, blinding the master of the house with his religious „devotion” and almost succeeds in his attempts to seduce his wife and disinherit his children before the final unmasking. In our representation of this play, we are trying to capture both the tragedy and the comedy of the play. Although this piece counts for a comedy, we can find the elements of tragedy in it. Throughout the play, we are portraying passion, anger, revenge, jealousy and social criticism. The natures of our characters are quite intensive, which help us to portray the seriousness and the importance of Molière’s message. The troubles and problems of the 17th century that are described by Molière are still surrounding us. So, despite the style of the play and the costumes that are both vintage, our acting is energetic and up to date.

Performance presented in English with Romanian subtitles.
