A sharp, vigorously funny and topical comedy” Whatsonstage 

Written by BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning writers, Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto (The Office, Goodness Gracious Me, The Kumars at No.42, Citizen Khan) this reimagined comedy is not to be missed. Tartuffe has the gift of the gab. A spirituality.
