Due to Covid-19, all performances of the EMU Theatre production of Tartuffe have been cancelled. Those who have purchased tickets will be contacted regarding a refund. We apologize for any inconvenience but it is our priority to keep everyone as safe as possible. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you at the theatre in the future.
The audacious and gullible patriarch Orgon, much to the chagrin of his frivolous family, has abdicated all sense, and surrendered both his authority and wealth into the hands of his new houseguest, a cunning conman, Tartuffe. Hijinks ensue as the hostage household plots to free its father from his own foolishness before all is lost. A comedic classic of world theatre, Moliere’s play presents an uproarious if stinging testament to the dangers of deception and blind trust.
