About this event
Liz Lochhead's un-PC, rude, rhyming cut of Moliere's classic relocated
to a 1940s Scotch living room. Con man Tartuffe, with his perfect mark
in the gullible paterfamilias, will ruin them all. Unless, together,
trophy wife and sassy maid prevail? Sex: men and women using it against
each other. You have to laugh! In association with Royal Lyceum Theatre
Edinburgh and The Stephen Dunn Theatre Fund. Directed by Tony Cownie,
following a sell-out run at Oran Mor.
★★★★ "The cast give it pure laldy" Herald.
★★★★ "Moliere himself might well have relished its pace, flair and earthy hilarity" Scotsman.
