Master of the house, Orgon, has invited religious Tartuffe to stay with the family. Not only that, his admiration for him is near insanity. He wants his daughter to marry Tartuffe, before making him the sole heir to his wealth. The rest of the family - the wife, son, daughter, and even the maid - has seen the hypocrite behind Tartuffe's pious appearance, except for Orgon who remains blinded by faith. As such, the family finds themselves at wit's end. How do you make a fox reveals its true nature? How do you make someone see the truth?
