Experience hypocrisy and folly at its finest in Tartuffe, Molière's 1664 comedy, directed by Pomona College Professor of Theatre Leonard Pronko. In Tartuffe, or "The Imposter," vagabond turned houseguest Tartuffe uses wit and cunning to tear apart a household that master Orgon and his family are desperately trying to hold together. Tartuffe will be performed at Pomona College on Thursday, March 6 through Saturday, March 8 at 8 p.m., and Saturday, March 8, and Sunday, March 9 at 2 p.m., in Seaver Theatre (300 E. Bonita Ave., Claremont).
Director Pronko, an expert in Western theatre history and kabuki and a past professor of Romance languages and literature, joined Pomona in 1957 and has twice won the College's Wig Distinguished Professor Award for excellence in teaching.
