#TheaterPH - Tanghalang Ateneo presents Molière’s Tartuffe o Ang Manloloko

A full-length adaptation of the beloved theatrical comedy Tartuffe o Ang Manloloko translated by National Artist Rolando S. Tinio and directed by seasoned director Ron Capinding, will be presented by Tanghalang Ateneo, the longest-running theater company of the Loyola Schools of Ateneo de Manila, in its 44th Theater Season.

The plot of Tartuffe centers on the pious fraud's increasing influence over socially conscious Orgon and his mother Madame Pernelle, which prompts Orgon's family to force the two to come to terms with Tartuffe's duplicity and arrogant claim to heavenly authority. Inadvertently integrating Tartuffe, a former vagrant, so deeply into the family, though, puts them in danger of losing everything if he gets his way. Together, Orgon's family attempts to decipher Tartuffe's world and prevent their approaching disgrace and dispossession.

The retelling of this classic seeks to highlight a number of issues, including values in society established by those in power for their own gain in the struggle for power; when faced with deceit and hypocrisy, will the truth ever prevail? This is in keeping with Tanghalang Ateneo's 44th season, which is aptly themed Reformatio | Pagbabagong-hugis.

Serving as the company’s sole production for its 44th Theater Season, the cast will feature Tanghalang Ateneo alumna Gold Soon (as Madame Pernelle) and members themselves of Tanghalang Ateneo:

The show dates of Tartuffe will be on 18 to 19, 25 to 26 March, and 01 April for its 03:00 PM showtime. Meanwhile, it will also be shown on 16 to 19, 23 to 26, 29 to 31 March, and 01 April for a 07:00 PM showtime. Tickets will be sold with a souvenir program at PhP 350 for non-Atenean general viewing starting 11 February 2023. A discounted price of PhP 280 is offered for senior citizens and persons with disabilities.
