Black Swan State Theatre Company. Directed by Kate Cherry. Heath Ledger Theatre, State Theatre Centre, WA. October 22 - November 6, 2016.
The campy, cartoon-like romp that is Justin Fleming’s new version of Tartuffe provides a wonderful swan-song as artistic director Kate Cherry departs from Black Swan.
Set on a beautiful, clean, modern multi-level revolving set by Richard Roberts (who also designed the costumes), - this translation, with its clever, if sometimes amusingly forced rhyme, is up-to-the-minute and unmistakably Australian, yet loyal to its French parentage and origin.
