Condemned and banned for five years in Moliere's day, "Tartuffe" is a satire on religious hypocrisy. Tartuffe worms his way into Orgon's household, blinding the master of the house with his religious "devotion," and almost succeeds in his attempts to seduce his wife and disinherit his children before the final unmasking. Molière's play repeatedly ran into difficulties with the religious censorship. It was only through the direct intervention of his patron, King Louis XIV himself, that he was able to obtain permission for it to be performed.
The group welcomes inexperienced and experienced readers alike. The only criteria are the love of plays and the joy of reading them aloud among like-minded theater fans.
