2017 in South Africa will be a Molière year with a national tour of Tartuffe!
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 works.
In 2012, the Fortune Cookie Theatre Company's critically acclaimed production of Molière’s Miser was sold out and won four Naledi Awards.
Now in 2017, Sylvaine Strike and the Fortune Cookie Theatre Company are taking Molière to the next level with a national tour scheduled in Soweto, Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg... and more dates to come!
We are proud to showcase the genius of Molière, one of France’s most accomplished and universal artists. His masterpiece Tartuffe will be played by a brilliant South African cast, within a context never seen before and which promises a lot of surprises.
Come take a peek behind the curtain and see how the theatre magic is made! …Follow us with #TartuffeSA
Tartuffe is brought to you by the Fortune Cookie Theatre Company, the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) and the Alliance Française in South Africa, with the support of Total South Africa, BNP Paribas and RCS (a BNP Paribas group company) and Mazars South Africa.
