Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price
Moliere’s comic masterpiece about an irreclaimable hypocrite – one of the most famous French plays of all time.
The pious Tartuffe is lodging with Orgon and his family, ingratiating himself with both his host and his host’s mother to such a degree that both are blinded to his true – rather less virtuous – designs. Like marrying Orgon’s daughter Mariane, whilst seducing his wife, Elmire.
This English version of Tartuffe, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is translated and introduced by Martin Sorrell.
