Director Gemma Bodinetz & Poet Roger McGough discuss the production.
Originally banned by Louis XIV, Tartuffe is Moliere's famous comedy re-told in a sparkling and witty version by 'Liverpool's Poet Laureate', Roger McGough.
Tartuffe is a beacon of piety and in the home of wealthy merchant Orgon he has his feet firmly under the table. But all is not as it seems and as Orgon becomes more enraptured with is new companion the whole city is chattering. Is he a friend, a fraud, a miracle or a hypocrite?
The family smell a rat and amidst the frills and frivolity of Seventeenth Century society they hatch a cunning plan to outwit the wily deceiver before he brings their house crashing down.
