Comedy of heir-ors

art10633


Tartuffe opens at University of Illinois Springfield Studio Theater Oct. 26 igniting the 2012-2013 season for the UIS theater department. Six performances showcase this comedy by Moliere, twice banned in the 17th century as sacrilegious, and brought to light in a contemporary translation by Ranjit Bolt. Subtitled, “The Hypocrite,” the play focuses on a religious fraud, Tartuffe, who slyly dupes a wealthy merchant, Orgon, into signing over to him his estate, and even his daughter. UIS Associate Professor of Theatre Missy Thibodeaux-Thompson directs. Buy tickets in person at Sangamon Auditorium ticket office to avoid a higher service charge. More details on the play can be found at www.uis.edu/theatre.
