L.A. Present day. French media tycoon Orgon has fallen under the seductive spell of Tartuffe, a radical evangelist. So comprehensively has Tartuffe hoodwinked Orgon that he looks set to steal his fortune, drive away his son, seduce his wife and marry his daughter.

Adapted by Christopher Hampton and starring acclaimed film and television actor Paul Anderson as Tartuffe, alongside celebrated stage and screen stars Audrey Fleurot, George Blagden and Sebastian Roché, the production re-imagines Tartuffe as a radical American evangelist who uproots the life of a French film tycoon in Hollywood. This adaptation of Tartuffe alternates between English with French surtitles, and French with English surtitles to reflect the unfolding plot.

Written in 1664, Tartuffe, or The Impostor became regarded as one of Molière’s most celebrated comedies, complete with some of the greatest classical theatre roles. Set present day in Donald Trump’s America, the play’s trenchant mockery of human frailties remains as relevant as ever in this darkly comic adaptation of the classic satire.

The full cast includes Paul Anderson as Tartuffe (Peaky Blinders, The Revenant), George Blagden as Damis (Versailles, Vikings), Nadia Cavelle as Flipote (Beautiful Damned, Antigone), Jaz Deol as Valère (The Halcyon, Code of a Killer), Sophie Duez as Eliante (Don Juan, Midsummer Night’s Dream), Zachary Fall as The Officer (Poldark, Versailles), John Faulkner as Monsieur Loyal (Little Boy Blue, Mary Queen of Scots), Audrey Fleurot as Elmire (Spiral, The Intouchables), Paikan Garutti as Laurent (Songe d’une nuit d’été, Courteline), Annick Le Goff as Madame Pernelle (Le Petit Lieutenant), Claude Perron as Dorine (Amélie, Chrysalis), Sebastian Roché as Orgon (Man in the High Castle, Vampire Diaries, Young Pope), Olivia Ross as Mariane (War & Peace, Shakespeare's Globe: A Midsummer Night's Dream) and Vincent Winterhalter as Cléante (Spiral, Nicolas Le Floch).

The production is supported by the Guillaume Rambourg Foundation and The Institut Français.
