Written by Molière, Ranjit Bolt
Directed by Jeffrey Lo
In this witty cutting version of Le Misanthrope Molière's angry hero Alceste becomes Alan—journalist, intellectual and free spirit—who finds himself adrift in a social whirl of false flattery and schmooze. In a world where nobody calls a spade a spade (or even knows what a spade is for), how can the cantankerous but high-minded Alan secure the affections of Celia—a spoiled, feckless, fickle socialite, who happens to be the love of his life?
