Description

Following recent government guidelines, please note that all performances of Tartuffe are cancelled to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please find our full statement here.


Tartuffe has the gift of the gab. A spirituality. A certain aura about him… that comes only when you claim to have Allah on your side, hundreds of Twitter followers and access to the family's bank account. Eventually, the lies and deceit unfold in this wickedly hilarious Brummie comedy of faith, family and #fakingit, penned by BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning writers, Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto (The Office, Goodness Gracious Me, The Kumars at No.42, Boomers).

The well-off Pervaiz household, living in modern Birmingham, are in uproar. Dad, Imran, has welcomed in the charismatic and devout Tahir Taufiq Arsuf, or Tartuffe to the sceptical. Imran's new wife, Amira, is isolated from the children and under fire from her ferocious mother-in-law, Dadimaa. Darina, the Bosnian maid, knows where the dirt is hidden and can be trusted to clean up after - 'til now...

Will Tartuffe succeed in winning the souls of the family, getting the son kicked out, marrying the daughter and having it off with the wife? Or can Darina, with the help of Amira, find a way to save Imran from himself and heal the family?

Please note: This performance contains strong language.
