The Misanthrope

By Molière
Adapted by Constance Congdon

Directed by Dan Smith

This French classic is a comedy of manners about friendship and love in a world of absolute power enforced through surveillance. While his friends and rivals wield wit for sport and use compliments as commerce, Alceste’s dissenting voice seeks truth at all costs.
