Tartuffe 2008 – Iowa State University Theatre Production

by Moliere

Whom should we trust?

First performed at Versailles before King Louis XIV, this play was later banned in Paris. ISU Theatre’s production is set in Greenwich Village in the late 1950’s. Regardless of the setting there are family problems, generations who cannot agree, fools who are admired, persons of reason who are ignored and at the center is a charming hypocrite.

November 5, 7, and 8 at 7:30 p.m. and November 9 at 2 p.m.
