TARTUFF

By Moliere, translated by Ranjit Bolt

Circomedia Bristol
Directed by Jenny Stephens

Tartuffe, banned in its day, still has the power to shock, despite our contemporary sensibilities. It is the presentation of unchanging human nature which has ensured it has amused and disturbed audiences in equal measure for over 350 years. The world moves on, but human beings remain the same – driven by the same needs, desires and wants as countless generations before them.
