Wit, cunning, and hypocrisy are on full display in this punk-rock remake of Moliere’s classic farce. Circle Theatre’s Artistic Director Ashley H. White+ pens a new approach to the iconic play.

Get ready for a swift, unapologetic whirlwind that reintroduces the timeless tale of a man who deploys his charm and feigned piety in an attempt to disrupt a household.

However, his clever scheme is no match for the astute women of the family who decide to beat him at his own game. Tartuffe may believe himself to be a master of deception, but he’s seriously underestimated his targets (or perhaps, overestimated his own abilities).

With a compact cast, contemporary language, and nonstop bits, Imposter! Hypocrite! TARTUFFE! delves deep into the realms of human desires and power dynamics, offering a fresh, biting take on the classic French comedy.

“Leave everything on the mat.”

The show opens by introducing us to an unconventional wrestling duo. Macedonio Guerra (“Mace”), a Puerto Rican wrestling fanatic (and “jobber” in the ring), finds himself teamed up with Vigneshwar Paduar (“VP”), a Brooklynite of Indian descent. The two have found a unique bond and ambition to fight together, wrestling for fun and for funds. In an electrifying turn of events, they are picked up, and cast as “terrorists” in the ring. The crowd revels in this narrative, forcing audience members to pick up the pieces.

Through Macedonio and Vigneshwar, Playwright Diaz pushes boundaries beyond the wrestling ring — addressing unspoken issues such as racism and politics and their presence within mass media. In this high-voltage play, it’s not just about winning matches but fighting for silenced truths. Buckle up—this striking theatrical experience leaves everything on the mat.
