Presenting a never seen before Tartuffe seems unimaginable. Yet, that’s what audiences will get a chance to see in Prospect Park this May when Molière in the Park stages the English language world premiere of Molière's original Tartuffe, written in 1664, and immediately banned by the King of France.

Lost to history, this original play was reconstructed by Georges Forestier, a renowned French historian, through a process of historical genetics, and premiered at La Comédie Française in Paris in 2022. Now, it will be presented in English for the first time ever on the Molière in the Park stage, translated by Maya Slater and directed by Molière in the Park’s Founding Artistic Director Lucie Tiberghien. Join MIP for a more confrontational but just as hilarious Tartuffe or The Hypocrite, censored and lost because it dared to expose the willful denialism and folly of extreme religiosity.

A bible-thumping slug enters the home of a puritan bug, mix in love, power, and fleshly fantasies by the hour, and call it Molière’s original plug!
If ever a play, plumed back in the day, knew exactly with what we’d be dealing.
THIS tale by Molière, might be older fare, but the story’s even more… revealing.
