2013 is Guildburys’ 50th anniversary. As part of our celebrations this production will be presented both at Farnham Castle and also at the world famous theatre on the cliffs, The Minack in Cornwall. We are proud to have been invited and pleased to be returning to this spectacular venue.
Tartuffe is the very model of self-effacing piety.
Wealthy but gullible merchant Orgon has become mesmerised by the apparently saintly Tartuffe, much to the consternation of his family. But is Tartuffe a friend or a fraud? Eavesdroppers hide in cupboards and under tables whist seduction stalks the chateau. A cunning plan is hatched with attractive ‘bait’ to expose devilishly devious deception.
Moliere’s seventeenth century original was immediately banned by Louis XIV but is now probably France’s most famous comedy. Here Roger McGough, the master of sparkling Scouse wit, adapts the play with anarchic irreverence to present a bawdy, hysterical comedy.
Slick, superb writing in partnership with puns, Franglais and physical comedy make this a delight.
