Comedy – NTC Theatre Co. in "Tartuffe",
Monday 12th Sept. 8pm, 2 hours including interval, age 12+
A new performance version by Stewart Howson of an hilarious and outrageous classic.
Tartuffe, a roguish imposter, worms his way into the orderly household of prosperous yet näive merchant Orgon. He sets out to marry the daughter, seduce the wife, imprison Orgon and get his hands on the family fortune.
Cue disguises, thwarted lovers, eavesdropping and the famous ‘under the table scene', one of the funniest comic set pieces ever written for the stage. Tartuffe is performed in a style with one foot in Commedia dell'Arte and the other in ‘Carry On' yet with a relevance that will delight modern-day audiences.
