    Michaelmas Week 7

    The scheming fraudster Tartuffe has weaselled his way into the house (and heart) of Orgon, a wealthy old man whose desire to emulate his 'saintly' friend has resulted in giving Tartuffe almost all of his possessions. Not content with Orgon's monetary gifts (and the offer of marrying his daughter Marianne) Tartuffe attempts to seduce Orgon's wife, Elmire, who is having none of it. With the entire household desperate to reveal Tartuffe's true nature to the deluded Orgon (and his even more deluded mother Mme Pernelle) they set up a trap to catch him out. Orgon finally sees things for what they truly are...but is it too late?
