Theatre UNO is proud to present The Misanthrope by Molíere, a satire of polite society in which power plays and cruel gossip are the background for unrequited love and passionate seductions. Alceste, a man of strong convictions, fiercely rejects the artifice of 17th Century French courtly society, isolating himself from this world he views as wholly superficial. Theatre UNO will explore this theme while transporting the play to the Paris of 1965. Suddenly, Alceste finds himself falling desperately in love with coy and flirtatious Célimène, despite loathing her behavior and reprimanding her constantly. Will Alceste stick with his integrity and exile himself forever from this shallow society or will he abandon it all for the resolute Célimène who represents all he so adamantly criticizes?
