Following a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, EIF award winners, Belt Up Theatre bring their interactive and immersive re-working of Molière’s classic to the Southwark Playhouse.
Blending clowning, farce, satire, mime and egotistical actors into a bizarre cocktail of meta-theatrical choreographed chaos – Moliere purists should leave all reservations at the door. Those that don’t like to be interacted with? Drop your guard because the haphazard troupe will grab you if they need you. By the end, they’ll have to shout at you to sit back down.
An indefinite number of years after a career destroying scandal, lost luvvie, Orgon Poquelin presents a theatrical representation of his fall from grace at the hands of the sinister conman – Tartuffe. Assisted by his troupe of faded French variety act vagabonds, Orgon attempts a performance to truly exorcise the demons of his past.
“A chaotic maelstrom of drama choreographed to perfection”
“Belt Up makes the impossible possible”
