Adakar Theatre and Cultural Group presents: Shri 420
Date/Time: 14 Jul 2017 - 15 Jul 2017
In Moliere's Tartuffe, Orgon is a man of property duped by the false piety of the penniless Tartuffe. Orgon takes him into his house, believing him a paragon of virtue. Orgon orders his daughter to reject her fiancé and marry Tartuffe. First Dorine, the family servant, tries a strategy to avert the marriage; then Orgon's son tries his hand. They anger Orgon, and to prove paternal power, he disinherits his son and makes Tartuffe his heir. Next Orgon's wife tries to bring her husband insight, a stratagem that partially backfires. With the bailiff at the door ordering Orgon to vacate his own home and with Tartuffe at court to prove Orgon's a traitor, all seems lost.
Shri 420 is an Indian adaptation of Tartuffe by awarded script writer Atul Tiwari and has been set to an Indian family settled in Sydney and is a hilarious comedy everyone will enujoy
