The Misanthrope

LA Theatre Works
Directed by Rosalind Ayres
This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière's most probing and mature works. While it's still an exemplar of 16th century farce, Molière went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste.
