* SettingUpdate: A translation by Australian playwright Justin Fleming sets the action in 21st-century Australia, making use of Aussie slang and incorporating a number of topical jokes. The deus ex machina at the end takes the form of a TV news crew finishing up an investigation into Tartuffe's activities.
* SettingUpdate: An adaptation by actor/author/comedian Andy Jones in rhyming couplets uses a setting of 1939 Newfoundland (that is, before confederation with Canada) and many words and phrases unique to the province.

'''''Tartuffe, ou, l'Imposteur''''' is possibly the most famous play of Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, a.k.a. Creator/{{Moliere}}. Tartuffe is a con man who has the well-to-do Orgon convinced that he's a pious, generous, and all-around good guy. Everyone else (save for Orgon's mother) can see right through the ruse and try desperately to make Orgon see Tartuffe for the fraud he is -- especially when Orgon disinherits his son in Tartuffe's favor and attempts to make his daughter jilt her eligible suitor to marry the hypocrite. Worse yet, Orgon has admitted covering for a friend involved in a political plot -- and Tartuffe has no scruples about informing when this proves to be advantageous to him.

* DeliberatelyPainfulClothing: The titular character wears a hair shirt... but in a sign that his supposed piety is all an act, he wears the shirt ''inside out'', so that he doesn't actually feel any discomfort.

* CatchPhrase: In an early scene, when Dorine is describing how Tartuffe has been gorging and swilling while while Elmire had been suffering from a dangerous illness, Orgon's only response is a repeated, "The poor man!"
** BorrowedCatchphrase: Dorine later uses the phrase herself ironically.
