Theatre Royal Haymarket
25 May - 28 July 2019

Inspired by current world events, Academy, BAFTA and Olivier award winner Christopher Hampton (ART, Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement) freshly adapted Molière's comedic masterpiece Tartuffe for a limited 10 week season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Paul Anderson (Peaky Blinders, The Revenant) made his West End debut in the titular eponymous role, alongside celebrated French stage and screen star Audrey Fleurot (SpiralThe Intouchables) as Elmire, Sebastian Roché (Man in the High Castle, Vampire Diaries, The Young Pope) as Orgon, and George Blagden (VersaillesVikings) as Damis.

L.A. Present day. French media tycoon Orgon has fallen under the seductive spell of Tartuffe, a radical American evangelist. So comprehensively has Tartuffe hoodwinked Orgon that he looks set to steal his fortune, drive away his son, seduce his wife and marry his daughter.

This thrilling new adaptation of Molière’s classic comedy, directed by the former dramaturg of the French People’s National Theatre Gerald Garutti, was the West End’s first ever dual language theatre production, alternating between English and French with surtitles throughout.

★★★★  "Delicious moments of tension, wicked satirical humour, and an impressive blend of some wonderful talent from England and France" - Broadway World

★★★★  "A charming and rather wonderful oddity… a bohemian broadside against Brexiteer Isolationism and Fogeyish Philistinism… Ingenious"  -

★★★★  "Entertaining… Claude Perron steals the show as Dorine"  -  Plays to See

★★★★ “Le modernisme de la pièce apporté par le duo Christopher Hampton et Gérald Garutti, ainsi que leur audace à adapter un grand classique français, est sans nul doute ce qu’il faut retenir de ce Tartuffe nouvelle version.” - French Morning London

★★★★  "A wonderful performance"  -  Box Office

“Slick, handsome... the show struck a chord and the crowd loved it!”- The Spectator

"On a adore la version… Une pièce événement pour ce printemps, à ne pas louper"
