About The Book
It is 14 years since the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and 2 years before the American Revolution. The British garrison in Montreal is rehearsing Moli�re’s Tartuffe, hoping to impress the local ladies with their French effort. Matters are complicated by the Church, however, which had banned theatre productions in Qu�bec since 1694, and is especially loathe to allow a production of the blasphemous Tartuffe. Political intrigue gets in the way too, as locals and officers get swept up the romance of the revolution to the south, plotting treason in Qu�bec. And, naturally, there is love — alliances of the heart which respect no political, cultural or linguistic borders.
L’Affaire Tartuffe is inspired by historical fact: the first performance by anglophones in Qu�bec was put on by British garrison officers stationed in Montreal. They chose to debut with Moli�re…and they performed in French. Ackerman weaves a riveting drama of cross-cultural love affairs, the stranglehold of Church and State, and the seditious plans to join the Yankees to the south.
