    “A rip-roaring night of comedy that turns the oft-accused ‘too international’ Molière into a British political satirist.”

    “A splendid Tartuffe. This is an adaptation that treats Molière’s 17th century comedy with great respect, yet which seems as fresh and immediate as today’s news.”

    “The play…has a very relevant message for our times…this highly entertaining Tartuffe reminds us that a little healthy scepticism would not go amiss. Bravo!”

    “Very easy going and surprisingly relevant given that the original work is over 350 years old. Good stories stand the test of time and this one is no exception.”

    “Well written, well directed and really well performed in the round at the fabulous Tobacco Factory Theatres.”

    “Some truly laugh out loud moments…I’d highly recommend this show.”

    “A brilliant, witty and uncompromising adaptation that resonates sharply with our own tense contemporary zeitgeist”

    “The semi-poetic script allows for some clever wordplay and lends a pace to the dialogue which enhances the black comedy”

    “For all its 17th century French roots, this Tartuffe can undoubtedly stand comfortably alongside any modern British comedy.”

    “Simply entertaining, touching and makes you laugh a lot. That’s really all you need for a good night at the theatre.”
