Event Details Tartuffe

Presented by Perisphere Theater

Sixteen

From the 17th century, this Moliere farce employs witty rhyming couplets and classic characters in a sendup of society’s hypocrisies and privileges.

Equally resonant for today’s audiences, the play shows the con man Tartuffe taking over a household right under the patriarch’s nose—unless reason prevails and the family can expose him.

In this play of lies, how do we hear the truth?


Join Perisphere on January 28th for a Special “Spotlight on Tartuffe” salon and audience discussion following the 2 pm matinee, led by Ashleigh Corwin of Georgetown University, a PhD candidate in early modern French history, with a focus on sixteenth-century religion and politics.


Late seating will take place 10 minutes after the start of the performance. Patrons arriving later than 10 minutes into the performance will not be admitted in to the theatre.
