17th century France or 21st century Georgia ?!
Priest of the church or the family psychologist ?!

Tartuffee, who is beloved by your mother as her own son! You are happy !
Tartuffee, who takes away your wife and the child in a name of a true friend. You are even more happy  !
Tartuffee, who betrays in a name of loyalty! You are still happy !
Tartuffee, who takes away everything in a name of owner ! You wake up and say, 'I was blind !'
And me - Tartuffee, I wonder if you were blind or just happy ?!
Maybe you are Tartuffee  and I am – you !
Maybe all are Tartuffee  - the mother, your wife, the children, your brother- in- law, the King - everyone around ?
