Mitchell Theatre Presents Moliere’s Tartuffe

Published: Nov 11, 2014

Taylor University’s Mitchell Theatre presents Molière’s classic comedy Tartuffe. This witty play follows a family and their struggle against a quick-witted con man. Under the pretense of piety, Tartuffe won the admiration and trust of Orgon. Now Tartuffe has taken over the house eating, drinking, and gaining power. Can Orgon’s family unmask his plot before it is too late?
