Koršunovas looks at the comedy by Moliere from the perspective of modern day: he supplements it with pertinent cultural contexts and allusions to politics of today. The director diagnoses tartuffeisme as a disease caught by our politics, and spread to the vast majority of the public. Thus, the deception of Tartuffe takes place not only inside the content of the play, when Tartuffe makes a fool of Orgon, but also in its form, when the actors are playing with the audience. The green labyrinth created by Vytautas Narbutas creates circumstances for theatrical action that easily turns the idea of the actors and the director into a comedy.
