First performed in 1664, Tartuffe, Molière’s most famous comedy, was banned for its depiction of an outwardly pious individual who at their core are deceitful, manipulative, and entirely self-serving. Tartuffe (or as he is often referred to, “The Imposter,” or “The Hypocrite,”), impresses the war veteran Orgon with his “deep and heartfelt prayer” in church, and is taken in as a spiritual cleanse to his household. Tartuffe cast his spell over Orgon and his mother, Madame Pernelle, much to the dismay of the rest of their family. Orgon’s fealty to Tartuffe puts his livelihood at risk – his daughter Mariane’s marriage, his wife Elmire’s trust, and the very land on which they live.
