Inspired by current world events, award-winning playwright Christopher Hampton has freshly adapted Molière's comedic masterpiece.
Acclaimed film and television actor Paul Anderson (Peaky Blinders, The Revenant) makes his West End debut in the title role, alongside celebrated French stage and screen star Audrey Fleurot (Spiral, The Intouchables) as Elmire. French screen star Sebastian Roché will perform the role of Orgon.
L.A. Present day. French media tycoon Orgon has fallen under the seductive spell of Tartuffe, a radical American evangelist. So comprehensively has Tartuffe hoodwinked Orgon that he looks set to steal his fortune, drive away his son, seduce his wife and marry his daughter.
This thrilling new adaptation of Molière’s classic comedy, penned by Academy, BAFTA and Olivier award winner Christopher Hampton (ART, Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement), and directed by the former dramaturg of the French People’s National Theatre Gerald Garutti, will premiere as the West End’s first ever dual language theatre production, alternating between English and French with surtitles throughout.
