A rollicking Scots version of Molière's classic Tartuffe.

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

This version of Tartuffe, by Liz Lochhead, was first staged at the Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, in 1986.
