Or The Hypocrite
Tartuffe (full title: Tartuffe, or The Hypocrite) is one of the most famous theatrical comedies by Molière. Molière wrote Tartuffe in 1664. Plot: Orgon's family is up in arms because Orgon and his mother have fallen under the influence of Tartuffe, a pious fraud (and a vagrant prior to Orgon's help). Tartuffe pretends to be pious and to speak with divine authority, and Orgon and his mother no longer take any action without first consulting him.
