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.
