‘Let’s see how crafty a picture you paint. You’re making a demon out of a saint.’

In this spectacular dramatic comedy, the villainous Tartuffe shocks and enthrals with his deceptive powers.  

Charming to some, a danger to others, one family risks losing everything if he gets his way. 

In a new version of Molière’s Tartuffe by Frank McGuinness, directed by Caitríona McLaughlin, this 17th century classic is given an audacious contemporary makeover. Where truth faces off with deceit, who has the last laugh? 

Molière’s exuberant comedy is brought back to life in an opulent Irish retelling of this classic tale.
