The prologue introduces Moliere’s troupe and dramatizes the King’s invitation to present the controversial play Tartuffe, considered by many to be Moliere’s best work. A hypocrite to whom Orgon entrusts his soul, his house and fortune, and finally his daughter is in love with another. By the time Orgon sees the light, only the courts can insure justice.
This adaptation was first performed at the Theatre Royal Bristol in 1950 starring George Coulouris and Dorothy Tutin

This copy has been used for a production, it is a little worn and with a few inked notes throughout, but a very good reading copy with the text fully readable and the book intact.
