Liz Lochhead’s un-P.C., rude-and-rhyming cut of Moliere's classic re-located to a Scotch living room of the 1940’s. Con-man Tartuffe, with his perfect mark in the gullible paterfamilias, will ruin them all. Unless, together, trophy-wife and sassy maid prevail? This play puts on the table: sex. Men and women using it against each other. You have to laugh! This co-production with the Royal Lyceum Theatre Company directed by Tony Cownie follows a sell-out run at Oran Mor.
“The cast give it pure laldy”. (The Herald):
“Moliere himself might well have relished its pace, flair and earthy hilarity.” (The Scotsman)
