When he invites the irresistible Tartuffe into his seemingly perfect household, he unleashes a whirlwind of deception and seduction that threatens everything.


With Orgon under Tartuffe's spell, can his family outwit this charismatic trickster?


Are Tartuffe's wild claims truth or fiction?


This mysterious stranger may not be quite the villain he appears.
