Approximately 2 hours 30 minutes including intermission.

Molière’s comedy classic is ingeniously re-imagined in Andy Jones’ riotous adaptation, set in 1939 Newfoundland. This Tartuffe is two hours of insanely brilliant showmanship that is witty, cutting and fierce. A blazingly funny exploration of religious hypocrisy – given a salty and distinctive Newfoundland flavour – the show starts with a slow boil which quickly roils into a steaming, rollicking love-fest, leaving audiences hiccupping with laughter.

Did you know?
The French original was written in rhyming verse – a form cleverly maintained in Andy Jones’ adaptation.

Please Note:
Live Rush tickets for Tartuffe are available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening performances only.

“French original takes on comedic Newfoundland flavour ... Andy Jones in clerical collar and purple stock is superb ... .”
