A rollicking Scots version of Moliere's classic Tartuffe.

Translated into an energetic Scots, Lochhead brings out Moliere's mix of political satire and black comedy as the religious hypocrite, Tartuffe, worms his way into Orgon's household.

'A complete theatrical winner, a brilliant blend of traditional lowland Scots, contemporary Glasgow patter and lethally sophisticated female wit.'

- Guardian
