Ends 28th July 2018.
Orgon is a powerful media tycoon, under the even more powerful spell of
evangelist Tartuffe, in the crazy world of Los Angeles.
Moliere's classic adapted in French (surtitles provided) and English by
Surtitles are located all over the theatre, and will be visible from all seats.
Audrey Fleurot will not be performing on 22nd and 28th
June, or 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th, 20th and 27th July 2018. At these performances,
the role of Elmire will be played by Sophie Duez. Cast details are given for

Not available. Professional reviewers are unanimous that Andrew D Edward's
cube set causes many of the problems with this play. The cast are rendered
inaudible when required to clamber into it, and the movement is distracting. The
move of the action to Los Angeles, though, apparently works far better and draws
approval of most, as do the performances - Audrey Fleurot in particular noted.
Sadly, the bi-lingual approach doesn't work. Aside from making it difficult
for audiences to focus on the text, one reviewer observes that the English
speakers struggle with the French physicality acting, while the French speakers
struggle with the spoken language. Given that Christopher Hampton's script
doesn't actually update fully to the USA and a discussion of its current
politics, the result is something that is neither clever commentary nor
classical revival and re-interpretation.
A slew of two star, one three and one single star review is the summary.
