A con man disguised as a pious spiritual leader wheedles his way into the home of a gullible wealthy man in the midst of a mid-life crisis—and promptly sets the household topsy turvy. If not for quick-witted Dorine, grounded Elmire, and patient Cléante, all might be lost! Lechery, egotism, young love, deception, and delusion collide in Molière's famous classic work that skewers religious hypocrisy and self-inflated egotism.
