The master of the house, Orgon, invites the pious Tartuffe to stay with his family. Enchanted by Tartuffe’s good nature, Orgon offers the newcomer his daughter’s hand in marriage – but the rest of his family can see through Tartuffe’s wiles and guiles. And now, they have to find a way to convince Orgon of their suspicions. The play was written by French playwright Molière, and is now translated and performed by Nine Years Theatre in Chinese with English subtitles.
We chat with Nelson Chia, co-founder of the theatre company about the upcoming performance.
