The University of Portland Theater Department is set to perform Molière's famous play, "Tartuffe." The tile of the play, roughly translating to "imposter" refers to the antagonist of the play. Tartuffe is a former vagrant who manages to fool the character of Orgon into thinking he is a great and pious man. Everyone else can see the conniving nature of Tartuffe, yet Orgon still remains fooled. What follows is play full of deceit and schemes to get Orgon to see the imposter's true colors.
