Orgon's house-guest Tartuffe appears to spend a lot of time in pious pursuits and denouncing improper behavoiour but is in fact a con-man. So successful is he that he looks set to drive away the son, marry the daughter, seduce the wife and ruin his host. Chaos follows in Moliere's classic satirical comedy.
