Hoipolloi presents...

Written and directed by Shôn Dale-Jones

The Impostor was Hoipolloi’s version of one of Molière’s classic comedies, full of imagination, visual excitement and comic invention.

A mysterious stranger arrives in a house preoccupied with reputation and vanity, in a society ruled by scandal and gossip. With beguiling charm, wit and his virtuous ways, the stranger persuades the Master of the House to welcome him into his family.

A farcical tale of who we choose to trust and how easily we can be conned.

“Inventive, fun, entertaining and very, very interesting, Hoipolloi’s production of The Impostor puts performance at the top of the theatrical agenda.”
