A farce from the 17th century, Moliere’s Tartuffe, in the Richard Wilbur translation, employs witty rhyming couplets and classic characters in a sendup of society’s hypocrisies and privileges. Equally resonant for today’s audiences, the play shows the con man Tartuffe taking over a household right under the patriarch’s nose—unless reason prevails and the family can expose him.
