Exploring the way in which people are easily manipulated by symbols of power and honeyed words, Tartuffe is one of the French Shakespeare’s most famous work.

SOWETO THEATRE (Red Theatre):
5th of April – 8PM Preview
6th of April – 8PM The Premiere (for guests only)
7th of April – 11AM School Matinee / 8PM Performance
8th of April – 8PM Performance

Sylvaine Strike and the Fortune Cookie Theatre Company will be then touring in South Africa: Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg and … more dates to come, stay tuned!
Promoting the work of Molière is even more relevant today as it remains utterly universal through the ongoing power of his word. IFAS and the Alliance Française are proud to showcase the genius of one of France’s most accomplished and universal artist, whose masterpiece Tartuffe will be played by a brilliant South African cast, within a context never seen before and promises a lot of surprises…

#DidYouKnow
Molière redefined French Theatre in the 17th century, becoming one of the greatest architects of social satire and his impact can still be felt today. Working under the patronage and protection of the “Roi Soleil” (Sun King) Louis XIV, hapenned approximately thirty comedies in which he satirised the shortcomings of the French society of his era. He was extremely successful (to the extent that French is now called “the language of Molière”) but had to suffer censorship and arrest due to his accurate derisions and stinging truth.
