Tartuffe is Moliere’s most famous play, yet when it premiered in 1664, right-wing extremists immediately banned it because it satirizes a wealthy merchant in the clutches of Tartuffe, a religious conman. The entire household becomes dysfunctional, with everyone contorting, conniving and scheming, as they must to survive in the face of hypocrisy. Masque Alfresco presents its brand-new adaptation of this classic-yet- timely play as a family-friendly comedy as their 2017 Summer Park Tour, their 16 th season. Masque Alfresco promises their renowned use of slapsticks, broad physical comedy schtick, colorful period costumes, plus original musical interludes.
