[LISTEN] Comedy masterpiece Tartuffe is on at the Baxter Theatre

Neil McCarthy returns to the stage as Orgon in Tartuffe by Molière.

The theatre production has been praised as a masterpiece and an uneasy comedy with a ‘potent’ message on the hypocrisy of the church.

McCarthy speaks to John Maytham, 23 years since last being on stage in Cape Town.

The play directed by Sylvaine Strike is on at the Baxter Theatre Centre.

I just got these incredible itchy feet to do it again…When Sylvain approached me and said was I at all interested in doing something like this again, there wasn’t even a moment when I thought this is a bit crazy.

Neil McCarthy, actor

I was determined to make it happen.
