“And there's no evil till the act is known; it's scandal, Madam, which makes it an offense and it's no sin to sin in confidence.”

Tartuffe masquerades as a pious man of the cloth while working to swindle the gullible Orgon out of his fortune, daughter, and reputation. But everyone else in the household smells a rat. When Tartuffe is threatened with exposure, he ups both the ante and the hilarity in this laugh-out-loud comedy, Molière’s most popular and wickedly funny play of deception, hypocrisy, and false morality.
