★★★★ Stage Talk Magazine ‘An adaptation that treats Molière’s 17th century comedy with great respect, yet which seems as fresh and immediate as today’s news.’ Mike Whitton

★★★★ The Reviews Hub ‘a rip-roaring night of comedy…’ Kris Hallett

★★★ The Stage ‘A rollicking attack on gullibility among the upper crust’ Jeremy Brien

On The Beat ‘sharp satire with lots of laughter as well as careful socio-political commentary. With brilliant writing and a fantastic cast, it is undoubtedly a success.’ Polly Hember

Female Arts ‘STF’s dynamic and enjoyable production satirises this ‘superficial age’ of the internet, fake news and demagoguery.’ Samantha Coughlan

Exeunt Magazine ‘Making politicians look silly always feels relevant’ Rosemary Waugh

B24/7 ‘Entertaining, touching and makes you laugh a lot’ Toby O’Connor Morse

Gloucester Gazette ‘The cast is unsurprisingly outstanding’ Jayne Bennett

British Theatre Guide ‘The script, written mostly in verse, sounds natural, maintains a rhythmic momentum throughout and sparkles with wit’ Colin Davison

Weston-Super-Mum ‘Good stories stand the test of time and this one is no exception. some truly laugh out loud moments…’ Becky Condron

The Fine Times Recorder ‘Sparklingly performed…Don’t miss it’

Molière’s master of self-interest is alive and prospering in the modern world. A credulous father is duped into surrendering his family’s wealth – and very nearly his wife and daughter – to one of drama’s
greatest conmen.

A radically new version of Molière’s great comedy directed by Andrew Hilton and written by Andrew and playwright Dominic Power, whose versions of The Comedy of Errors, Two Gentlemen of Verona and All’s Well That Ends Well have delighted audiences in Bristol and around the UK.
‘In the new politics of demagoguery and theocracy, Tartuffe is truly a play for today.  I have always loved Molière’s vigour, and the subtlety and resonance of his satire, and it is a great joy to be creating a new version of Tartuffe with my long-time collaborator, Dominic Power.’
