Tanghalang Ateneo presents Molière’s: Tartuffe o Ang Manloloko

 Tanghalang Ateneo, the longest-running theater company of the Loyola Schools of Ateneo de Manila, will be showcasing in its 44rd Theater Season, Reformatio | Pagbabagong-hugis, a full-length adaptation of the classic theatrical comedy Tartuffe o Ang Manloloko as translated by National Artist Rolando S. Tinio, and directed by seasoned director Ron Capinding

Tartuffe follows the story of the pious fraud Tartuffe’s growing influence over socially-conscious Orgon and his mother Madame Pernelle which leads Orgon’s family to make the pair discover his hypocrisy and pretentious divine authority. However, a series of events unintentionally embed Tartuffe, once a vagrant, well into the family that they risk losing everything if he gets his way. Together, Orgon’s family tries to unravel the reality within Tartuffe and escape their family’s impending disgrace and dispossession.
