Diego Matamoros is perfect in the role of Moliere’s unholy, holy man. He is sleazy and sanctimonious.
He fools Orgon (Oliver Dennis) into giving him all his property. Dennis manages just the right blend of piety and naivete.
The maid Dorine, played by Oyin Oladejo, is the cynic who sees through Tartuffe and ultimately saves the day. Brenda Robbins is brilliant as Madame Pernelle.
The production was interesting, with its use of many doors reminding me of a farce. The final scene, wherein Tartuffe is arrested by the King’s representative, took the farce elements to a higher level, with a red carpet rolling out and the king represented by a small carriage.
