The Misanthrope more information...
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.
