MOLIERE'S THE MISANTHROPE

Genre: Classical
translated by Richard Wilbur, directed by Michael Sexton

"The friend of mankind is no friend of mine"— the words of an honest man determined to exist in a society ruled by insincerity, and of a humorless grinch whose only pleasure is the humiliation of others. The only hitch is an obsessive passion for a woman who embodies all that he despises. Absurd and hilarious on the surface, sad and frightening in implication, The Misanthrope is a dazzling look at sincerity, social rules, and romantic love.
