THEATRE VISIT TO THE RSC STRATFORD TO SEE
MOLIÈRE'S "TARTUFFE " - Evening performance

Tuesday 19 February 2019

This visit to Stratford is to see a reworking of Molière's classic play. It has been brought up to date by Emmy Award-winning writers, Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto. They have relocated Molière's provocative French classic, first performed in 1664, to Birmingham's Pakistani Muslim community in 2018.

The well-off Pervaiz household, living in modern Birmingham, are in uproar. Dad, Imran, has welcomed in the charismatic and devout Tahir Taufiq Arsuf, or Tartuffe to the sceptical. Imran’s new wife, Amira, is isolated from the children and under fire from her ferocious mother-in-law, Dadimaa. Darina, the Bosnian maid, knows where the dirt is hidden. And can be trusted to clean up after - ‘til now...

Will Tartuffe succeed in winning the souls of the family, getting the son kicked out, marrying the daughter and having it off with the wife? Or can Darina, with the help of Amira, find a way to save Imran from himself and heal the family. It will all end with a wedding... But whose..?!

Cost £42

[Inclusive of stalls seat, transport and gratuities]
