Texas State presents 'Tartuffe'

Texas State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is proudly presenting Tartuffe by Molière, translation by Ranjit Bolt. The show will be directed by graduate student Jessica McMichael, through Oct. 9 in the Patti Strickel Harrison Theatre. Tartuffe claims to be so virtuous that every form of pleasure is an abomination. Orgon, a rich merchant, is completely duped by the scam and plans to give Tartuffe his fortune, his house and finally his daughter. This is, until Orgon’s wife strips the con man bare in this raucous new translation of the classic comedy.
