Molière’s wit meets its match in this saucy new adaptation of The Misanthrope by Tony Award-nominee David Ives. Underneath the classic façade of pretense and satire beats the heart of a true love story. This deliciously off-color script fills a 17th-century romantic spoof with contemporary slang and characters you find yourself rooting for. “When you emerge from this impish comic playwright’s glittering tribute… your head will be so dizzy with syncopated rhyme that you’ll almost expect to find yourself speaking and thinking in chiming couplets.” (The New York Times)
The area premiere by David Ives, adapted from The Misanthrope by Molière, and directed by Amy Rummenie. Contains adult language.
