Acclaimed film and television actor Paul Anderson will play the title role in Tartuffe at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, alongside celebrated French stage and screen star Audrey Fleurot as Elmire. In the West End's first ever dual-language production, Molière's classic comedy re-imagines Tartuffe as a radical American evangelist who uproots the life of a French film tycoon in Hollywood.
Tartuffe will premiere for a limited ten-week West End run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from Friday 25th May 2018 (Press Night on Tuesday 29th May).
Paul Anderson will make his West End debut as Tartuffe, a duplicitous evangelist who holds Orgon's family under his seductive spell. As well as starring in the hit drama Peaky Blinders (BBC & Netflix) as Arthur Shelby, Paul Anderson has held leading roles in The Revenant (20th Century Fox), Legend (Working Title), In the Heart of the Sea (Warner Bros. Pictures) and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (Warner Bros. Pictures). Paul Anderson will also appear as Guy of Gisborne in Leonardo DiCaprio's upcoming Robin Hood film (Summit Entertainment) later in 2018.
Audrey Fleurot will play Elmire, Orgon's wily wife who endeavours to avoid the beguiling effects of Tartuffe's charm. Audrey Fleurot's leading roles have included Joséphine Karlsson in the BAFTA nominated Spiral (Canal + / BBC), Magalie in the multi award-winning international hit film The Intouchables (Quad), Hortense in Un village français (Tétra Média) and as herself in Call My Agent! / Dix pour cent! (Netflix).
