Event Details

True to its mission of reimagining the world’s classics for today’s Singapore, Wild Rice proudly presents Tartuffe: The Imposter – a startlingly modern, darkly comic adaptation of iconic French playwright Molière’s satirical masterpiece.

A wealthy family starts to unravel when the head of the household, Orgon, befriends Tartuffe – a charming, seductive con artist masquerading as a man of faith. Everyone else smells a rat, even as Tartuffe weasels his way into Orgon’s home, heart and bank account. What will it take for Orgon to finally see the light? Can unholy disaster be averted? Or will blind devotion win the day?

Back by popular demand following a sold-out premiere run in 2022, Wild Rice’s Tartuffe: The Imposter remains trenchantly relevant today, in a world populated by scam artists and false prophets. With a devastatingly funny script by Joel Tan and sharply incisive direction by Glen Goei, this is a classic satire on religious hypocrisy and a warning about the calamity that can follow when we turn a blind eye to the dark deeds of the “pious”. Desperately trying to untangle vice from virtue is a stellar ensemble cast led by Ivan Heng and Benjamin Chow.

Join us at the theatre for a hell of a good time!
