** spoiler alert ** Background blurb - Moiliere (Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, 1622-1673) delighted in lampooning the social pretensions and conceits of 17th Century French society. In this 1664 verse comedy with serious overtones, Tartuffe, a penniless scoundrel and religious poseur, is invited by a gullible benefactor to live in his home.

Fun for a Monday!
