Character Breakdown / Project Needs
MADAME PERNELLE, Orgon’s mother, is totally deluded by Tartuffe until near the end of the play.

ORGON, is the central character of the play and comes entirely under the influence of the hypocrite Tartuffe. Orgon’s religious fanaticism seems more directly correlated to his basic nature, which is extravagant and uncontrolled in all respects, Orgon tries to become the epitome of the pious person and goes to absurd extremes both in his words and deeds.

ELMIRE, Orgon’s second wife, is reasonable and represents the opposite of her husband throughout most of the play.She stays cool under the hypocrites of Tartuffe. She attempts to control her circumstances and maintain order in her household. However the men in her life continue to disrupt this, and it's up to her to repair the damage.

DAMIS, Orgon’s son and Elmire’s stepson, uses his common sense to see through Tartuffe. He is angry and short tempered, he acts rashly without much rhyme or reason.

MARIANE, Orgon’s daughter, is in love with Valère and is being forced by her father to marry Tartuffe. She is over-dramatic and innocent. Her main priority is maintaining her marriage plans with Valere at whatever cost.

VALÈRE, Mariane’s suitor, is rejected by Orgon in favor of Tartuffe. He is also of an overdramatic nature.

CLÉANTE, Orgon’s brother-in-law, tries, usually unsuccessfully, to get everyone to view things with calm and reason.

TARTUFFE, a hypocrite, is a superb scoundrel who can don any pose and become a master of it. As a religious ascetic, he convinces Orgon and Madame Pernelle that he is a devoutly pious and humble man; his obvious hypocrisy, however, is apparent to the audience.

DORINE, Mariane’s maid, is the wise servant who sees through all pretense, and, while being the inferior in terms of social position, she is the superior in any contest of wits.

Roles are open to all gender identities, ethnicities and levels of experience
