Tartuffe, the Impostor, or the Hypocrite, is one of the most wildly popular comedies performed in modern times (for example, the Court Theatre recently mounted it last year).|
The play was first performed in 1664 and was censored within the same year by King Louis XIV due to the possible influence of the archbishop of Paris.
Tartuffe is the story of "the man who came to dinner" with a respectable Parisian family and has overstayed his welcome. The father of the family household is besotted with him, but the rest of the household is ready to throw Tartuffe out with the scullery pan!
The story is a great mockery on religion, vice and virtue.
