Central Works is bringing back its 2002 hit comedy about a man who hates the world! Is there ever a good reason to lie? Is honesty always the best policy? Even in affairs of the heart? Alan Moore is a misanthrope--one who hates mankind or possesses a pessimistic distrust of human nature. Everywhere in society, Alan finds nothing but falseness and hypocrisy. If it were up to me, he declares, we would all speak from the heart, or say nothing at all. But when it comes to his best friend, Phil, and Celia, the woman he loves, absolute honesty may be too much for Alan to bear.
"This Misanthrope may hate all humanity, but audiences will appreciate its humor, excellent acting, and evocative surroundings." --Lisa Drostova, East Bay Express
"This is all together a tight and incisive new play from old roots." --Jack Tucker, West County Times
