(Comedy) Adapted from Le Misanthrope by Molière. Its 1666 and the brightest, wittiest salon in Paris is that of Celimene, a beautiful young widow so known for her satiric tongue shes being sued for it. Surrounded by shallow suitors, whom she lives off of without surrendering to, Celimene has managed to evade love since her beloved husband dieduntil today, when Frank appears.|
A traveler from England known for his own coruscating wit and acidic misanthropy, Frank turns Celimenes world upside-down, taking on her suitors, matching her barb for barb, and teaching her how to live again. (Never mind that their love affair has been engineered by a couple of well-placed lies.) This wild farce of furious tempo and stunning verbal display, all in very contemporary couplets, runs variations on Molières The Misanthrope, which inspired it.
Another incomparable romp from the brilliant author of All in the Timing.
