Moliere’s classic comedy is one of the great originals that have been remade, adapted, musicalised and everything else-ised over the years. But, as with most classics, the original is still the best, and this is the original, brilliantly and wittily adapted by Roger McGough! The plot: a power hungry impostor uses fear and religion to gain power… with ridiculous and fabulously entertaining outcomes. Could this be relevant today? Bede’s Drama has an enviable reputation for producing brilliant and innovative productions, and these young dramatists are among the best in the universe (says Tartuffe himself, so it must be true!)
