Theatre Simpson's "Tartuffe"

Saturday, October 14, 2017

Constance Congdon’s witty verse adaptation of Molière’s timeless classic, in which a religious conman infiltrates the household of a gullible man and his exasperated family, has lent itself to productions set in modern-day Texas, New Orleans, and even The Sopranos’ New Jersey. With this production our audience will find itself immersed in a world of 1980s televangelism in the heat of Miami. One might even say Miami Vice. “Constance Congdon slips into Molière’s tricky shoes and the fit is Cinderella-perfect. Congdon’s quicksilver wit and breathless urgency coax the dark heart of Tartuffe into glowing with a twenty-first-century heat.” —John Guare
