About the Huntington Theatre Company
About the Play
Tartuffe, or The Impostor, or The Hypocrite first performed in 1664, is one of the most famous theatrical comedies by Molière. The characters of Tartuffe, Elmire, and Orgon are considered among the greatest classical theatre roles.
As a result of Molière's play, contemporary French and English both use the word "tartuffe" to designate a hypocrite who ostensibly and exaggeratedly feigns virtue, especially religious virtue. The play is written entirely in 1,962 twelve-syllable lines of rhyming couplets.
Don’t miss Huntington’s production of Tartuffe, on stage from Nov. 10 to Dec. 10. Center members will benefit from an exclusive discount code. Call reception for additional information.
