A Savagely Brilliant Comedy! Orgon, a wealthy family man, has taken in a stranger by the name of Tartuffe, a man who appears to be extremely pious and devout. Ofering the stranger his best food and drink, Orgon places the needs of his guest above those of his wife and children. His family sees through Tartuffe's pose and knows he does not practice what he preaches. This classic comedy exposes the dangers that iperil those who would believe only what they choose to believe despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary. Translated by Richard Wilber.
