by Molière

Produced by Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble


July 12th-28th 2024



“You see him as a saint. I’m way less awed;

In fact, I see right through him. He’s a fraud.”

Orgon is a man who has it all: wealth, influence, happy children, and a doting wife. But when he falls under the spell of Tartuffe, the charismatic spiritual guide (or hypocritical fraud, depending on who you ask), he begins to lose his grasp on it all. Can his family save him, or will he be completely tartuffified?

First performed and then speedily banned in 1664, Molière’s Tartuffe is a side-splitting satirical exploration of greed, seduction, piety, and deception.

Relaxed Performance Sat 20th July: Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome people who may enjoy a more relaxed performance environment, including (but not limited to) people with autism or individuals with sensory sensitivity. Parents and caregivers may also find the inclusive atmosphere relaxing with audience members free to move, speak, and respond throughout the performance.
On the day of the relaxed performance, shows are executed at the highest artistic level with slight technical adjustments that soften the sensory experience such as reduced lighting and sound and seating will be at reduced capacity. All patrons can be reassured that the Relaxed Performance is as fully engaging as any performance and executed with the same professionalism.
