Tartuffe was due to transfer to the Birmingham Rep from 20 March 2020 but has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Tartuffe has the gift of the gab. A spirituality. A certain aura about him… that comes only when you claim to have Allah on your side, hundreds of Twitter followers and access to the family’s bank account.
Eventually, the lies and deceit unfold in this wickedly hilarious Brummie satire of faith, family and #fakingit, penned by BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning writers, Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto (The Office, Goodness Gracious Me, The Kumars at No.42, Boomers).
After a successful run in the Swan Theatre in 2019 this updated Tartuffe, set in the Pakistani-Muslim community of Sparkhill transfers to its spiritual home when it plays in the Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
