Tartuffe

By Molière Adapted by Liz Lochhead
Published in volume Miseryguts & Tartuffe

A rollicking Scots version of Molière's comic masterpiece 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.

Liz Lochhead's version of Tartuffe was first performed in January 1986 at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh.
