Tar2f! An Irreverent Musical Comedy, by Jeff Olmsted, adapted from Molière’s Tartuffe. Directed by Chris Rohmann.
Silverthorne Theater Company is proud to present the world premiere of this farcical rebuke of religious pretense and moral hypocrisy – particularly timely in today’s world.
Tartuffe, a wily con man who passes himself off as a pious puritan, has insinuated himself into the household of Orgon, a wealthy Parisian, with designs on Orgon’s fortune & his attractive wife. Members of the family are exasperated, then outraged, by the impostor’s malign influence, as he plots to gain control of Orgon’s assets & possessions.
This new musical version underlines the show’s satirical sting, adding a framing device that parallels the crisis within the play, leading to a surprise climax.
