A play by one of France’s most celebrated playwrights is coming to the State Theatre Centre’s Studio Underground in July.

Performed by students from The Actors’ Hub, Tartuffe is a classic French satire and farce by Moliére first performed in 1664 and regarded as one of his most famous theatrical comedies.

Tartuffe is the name of the central character who is a wolf in sheep's clothing – he scams the family that has taken him in as their spiritual adviser and causes drama, confusion and comedy.

Gerard Depardieu directed and starred in the title role of a 1984 French film version while the 2007 film Moliére contains many direct and indirect references to Tartuffe.
