This brilliant satire by Molière is a merciless examination of the evil which men can commit in the guise of religious fervor, and the dangers which imperil those who would believe only what they choose to believe despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary. By far one of the most famous and wittiest plays ever written, it has stood the test of time - entertaining audiences since 1664! Tartuffe, a "man of God," uses his connections to swindle his generous host Orgon out of his wealth and his wife.
London Theatre Offerings
During the fall of 2013, the Department of Communication and Theatre will again be offering courses of study in London. Students on this trip will be guided in their studies and tours by PLNU faculty Ronda and Carl Winderl.
The intent of the Fall program is to allow PLNU students the opportunity to complete a semester of 12-17 credits in Great Britain (principally London) with the vast cultural resources of the country easily accessible and incorporated into their various courses. Creative scheduling will provide several long weekend breaks to facilitate travel throughout Great Britain and Europe, with more extensive independent travel possible after courses conclude in late November.
Courses will offer/include extensive exposure to the museums, concert halls, professional and fringe theatres, political and historic sites. Several overnight visits will be provided as part of the coursework, to locations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Hampton Court Palace, Bath and Stonehenge.
