A con man, Tartuffe, deceives a wealthy gentleman, Orgon, tries to seduce Orgons wife, Elmire, and finally gets Orgon to sign over the family estate. Orgons family, friends, and servants all try to unmask and get rid of Tartuffe. A grab for power cloaked in piety and religion? A misuse of religion in the avoidance of personal responsibility? People so caught up in their own excesses they dont notice whats going on until its too late? Sounds entirely contemporary and all too familiar, though Molieres brilliant satire was written in 1669.
