        Neo-Classicism: Tartuffe Scene 1

        Tartuffe is an example of satire. This segment shows two scenes, performed in reader’s theater style, from this 1664 play by Moliere. Moliere (1622-1673) was a premier playwright of satire and comedy. In the first scene, Mariane and Dorine discuss Mariane’s upcoming marriage to Tartuffe, a dishonest and conniving man who has been befriended by Mariane’s father Orgon. In the second scene, Cleante, Orgon’s brother-in-law enters the action. After Orgon has kicked his son Damis out of their house because he disagrees with Mariane’s marriage to Tartuffe, Cleante confronts Tartuffe.
