In November, come see a re-imagining of Moliere's classic farce Tartuffe as a high-energy, delightful commedia dell'arte show. The original thirteen characters will be all played by a five-person acting troupe as they tell the story of the titular con-artist who tries to steal the estate and riches of a gullible man in seventeenth century France while the man's children, wife and servants try to expose Tartuffe for the hypocrite he is!
