Summary: Written in 1930 by Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov, “Cabal” was seen by the Stalin-led Soviet government as a dangerous criticism, and was itself censored, banned after only seven performances. A Cabal of Hypocrites is a poignant commentary on censorship framed around the turbulent life of French playwright MoliŹre. MoliŹre has just produced the satirical play “Tartuffe,” much to the displeasure of Church officials, who conspire to ruin the author for what they deem as heretical thought.
