Lavishly adapted from Tartuffe, Monsieur Baptiste is the tale of a religious con-man who infiltrates a wealthy household, until his lustful passions for the lady of the house are exposed by the prayerful workings of a VooDoo Priestess. Set in 19th Century Haiti where the gens de couleur libres engage in a raucous battle of wealth and status.
