Tartuffe was first performed in 1664, and is one of the most famous theatrical comedies by Molière. The characters of Tartuffe, Elmire, and Orgon are considered among the greatest classical theater roles. Orgon, the head of a prosperous family, has taken Tartuffe, a man who purports to be holy, into his home. Orgon and his mother are the only ones to have fallen under the Tartuffe’s spell – the rest of Orgon’s relatives, including his wife and brother-in-law, see right through him. The classic comedy may also be referred to as the Impostor or The Hypocrite and is malleable to be performed in a variety of settings.
