In a radical interpretation of Molière's classic, New Guard Theater Company's production of "The Imposter" finds new relevance for age-old characters in a starkly contemporary setting. After making a shady deal with the government, billionaire CEO Orgon Pernelle eagerly welcomes pious drifter Tartuffe into his house, hoping for guidance to fill his vacuous life. He ignores his family and adviser's warnings that Tartuffe is nothing more than a scam-artist, and invites him deeper and deeper into his confidence. While Orgon is taken in by the imposter's facade, his wife sees through it to the underlying threat to their family and business. What will it take for Orgon to see the truth? How far must Elmire go to save her family? "The Imposter" is an exploration of the relationship between men and power, men and women, and the dangers of unquestioned authority. It investigates the chilling ways archetypal masculinity can send toxic shock waves through families, communities and cultures.
