ARTS Pick: Tartuffe

Orgon and his wife Elmire face a disastrous spiritual crisis, and the swindler Tartuffe is definitely not helping. Orgon’s children understand the truth: that the supposedly pious man doesn’t actually possess divine ability, and when a wounding announcement takes the stunt too far, the family must dislodge the impostor before more damage is done. Tartuffe is a 17th-century comedy about hypocrisy and family dysfunction, and one that’s found ways to adapt and stay relevant through the ages.

Through 12/6. $8-14, times vary. Ruth Caplin Theatre, 109 Culbreth Rd. 924-3376.
