Written by BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning writers, Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto (The Office, Goodness Gracious Me, The Kumars at No.42, Citizen Khan) this reimagined comedy is not to be missed. Tartuffe has the gift of the gab. A spirituality. A certain aura about him, that comes only when you claim to have Allah on your side, hundreds of Twitter followers and access to the family’s bank account.
Eventually, the lies and deceit unfold in this wickedly funny Brummie comedy about faith, family and #fakingit.
After a smash-hit run at the RSC in 2019 this updated Tartuffe, set in Sparkhill transfers to its spiritual home when it comes to The Rep this Autumn.
Directed by Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony Director and Rep Associate Iqbal Khan (East is East), get ready to howl with laughter at this classic farce as you’ve never seen it before.
