    • Tue., Oct. 3–Sat., Oct. 7, 7:30 p.m., W.M. Turner Auditorium

    Presented by the School of Theatre (The Mainstage Series)

    Molière created literature’s most memorable con artist--and one of the funniest plays ever written--more than 350 years ago. Tartuffe boasts lavishly of his religious piety and moral purity, but everyone can see that his behavior is absurdly hypocritical. Everyone, that is, except Orgon, the all-powerful father of the house where Tartuffe has taken up residence as a smarmy parasite. Orgon becomes ever more willfully receptive to Tartuffe’s scam in spite of his family’s arguments, so they lay a trap for the imposter—but will they catch the baroque sleazeball before he swindles them out of everything they’ve got? Tickets: $15 adults, $10 seniors and $7.50 students/youth. Recommended for mature audiences.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
