This translation of Moliere's classic depiction of hypocrisy in action was done for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
"The assumption behind this ferociously brilliant production is that Tartuffe is much too serious and alarming a work to be insulated behind any English equivalent of French classical style. The greatest compliment I can bestow on Hampton's translation is that...you hardly notice it. Plain, perfectly phrased blank verse does the job." - London Times
