"Directing any play is a challenge," Vivienne said. "Moliére's work is revered throughout the world and the play is challenging on every level. People will love the language, situation comedy, flair and style and, of course, the dexterity of the actors."
"This form of theatre, known as commedia dell'arte, requires characters to be taken all the way to their extremes, physically and vocally. Being able to play such an outrageous character and still bring it back to truth is a challenge I'm looking forward to facing."
"Tartuffe appealed because it's quick-paced, sharp, hilarious and rhymes the whole way through. That alone attracted me to it! But I was also inspired by Moliére's bravery to write such a controversial, hard-hitting play for its time."
Tartuffe plays at 7.30pm July 23, 24 and 25. Tickets are $25, $20 concession – book on 6143 3568 or at www.actorshub.net under "what's on".
