Book Now

In this spectacular dramatic comedy, the villainous Tartuffe shocks and enthrals with his deceptive powers.

Charming to some, a danger to others, one family risks losing everything if he gets his way.

Tartuffe, Molière’s exuberant comedy is brought back to life in an opulent Irish retelling of this classic tale. A 17th century classic, given an audacious contemporary makeover – where truth faces off with deceit, who has the last laugh?
