“Tartuffe,” also known as “The Imposter,” is Moliere’s classic 17th century play about religious hypocrisy. This production was translated into English by Richard Wilbur. The play centers around Orgon, a wealthy French merchant duped by the false piety of the penniless Tartuffe and the commotion that ensues.
The play is directed by Alan Klem, a professor at Creighton University, with assistance from theatre students Ephriam Harnsberger and Emma Rasmussen.
