Newton North’s award-winning performing arts program, Theatre Ink, opens its 2011/12 season with Moliere’s “Tartuffe” a hilarious and outrageous classic comedy, directed by Dan Fabrizio.
Tartuffe, a roguish imposter, worms his way into the orderly household of prosperous yet naive merchant Orgon. He sets out to marry the daughter, seduce the wife, imprison Orgon and get his hands on the family fortune. With thwarted lovers, eavesdropping and the famous ‘under the table scene’, one of the funniest comic set pieces ever written for the stage. Tartuffe is performed with a relevance that will delight modern-day audiences.
Performances are on November 3, 4 and 5th at 7:30PM in the Performing Arts Center main auditorium at NNHS 457 Walnut Street, Newtonville. Tickets are $7 for General Admission at www.theatreink.net or 617 559 6406
