The Georgia Southern Theatre is preparing for its next mainstage production, Moliere’s Tartuffe, adapted by David Ball and Directed by Nicholas Newell premiering Wednesday, Nov. 10, and running through Sunday, Nov. 14.

In Moliere’s timeless comedy, Tartuffe charms his way into the favor and home of the wealthy Orgon and throws it into chaos. Tartuffe uses his “religious” influence over Orgon to gain his fortune, his daughter’s hand in marriage, and maybe even wife. While some see through his hypocrisy, Orgon is still not convinced. Will the charlatan be unmasked before it is too late? Tartuffe’s slapstick, intrigue, and biting satire still rings as true today as it did in 1664.
