Starring Paul Anderson & Audrey Fleurot
The play will be performed in both English and French with surtitles throughout. 

Inspired by current world events, award-winning playwright Christopher Hampton has freshly adapted Moliere’s comedic masterpiece. 

In the title role of this thrilling new adaptation of Moliere’s classic comedy is Paul Anderson, known for his star turn in the hit drama Peaky Blinders.
He will be joined by celebrated French stage and screen star Audrey Fleurot (Spiral, The Intouchables) as Elmire and French screen star Sebastian Roché as Orgon.

What Is Tartuffe About? 

L.A. Present day. French media tycoon Orgon has re-located to Tinseltown with his family, his heart set on becoming Hollywood royalty. With a new studio to his name, and a palatial Beverly Hills mansion, his empire seems infallible. But all is not as it seems as Orgon falls under the seductive spell of Tartuffe, a radical American evangelist.  So comprehensively has Tartuffe hoodwinked Orgon that he looks set to steal his fortune, drive away his son, seduce his wife and marry his daughter.   

Penned by Academy, BAFTA and Olivier award winner Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons, Art, Atonement), and directed by the former dramaturg of the French People’s National Theatre, Gerald Garutti, Tartuffe will premiere as the West End’s first ever dual language theatre production, alternating between English and French with surtitles throughout.

As a Moliere fan I very much enjoyed the classic French element to the production but the English part added a dynamic touch and the changes to the text worked incredibly well, especially with Tartuffe himself. The super talented cast made the evening.

Wanted to see this famous French play and also the actors Audrey Fleurot and George Blagden, prev. seen in television series Spiral and Versailles resp. We felt the play would have been better in English or even French with subtitles, as the regular changes between the two languages did not work well. Other cast members seemed to out-act the actors we went to see and we particularly thought George Blagden was miscast in his role, although Audrey Fleurot had presence.

I enjoyed the play very much but I am found the subtitles/surtitles distracting. I don't like productions in anything other than English. I have tried productions in other languages and you don't get the full benefit of the play/acting. I fully appreciate the argument that the play was in French to start with!
