Moliere's most famous work, adapted using characteristic Physical Comedy and - at moments of particular explosion; excerpts of the original French Verse.
Alceste hates people. Except - when he can't help but really, really love them.
Enchanted by the shallow and obnoxious Celimene, this grumpy hermit must overcome his hatred of vanity & hypocrisy in order to win fair maiden.. But, riding roughshod over the feelings of many an airy aristocrat, can he persuade his beloved to retreat away from the world, or will the lawsuits at his back see him plunged into deepest, darkest incarceration?
This is a raucous, farcical romp slathered with pretension - but ultimately driven by a very real need for affection.
"The Misanthrope" has been lauded as one of Moliere's finest works.
We utilise original character & movement roots from Commedia Dell'Arte as well as French language to delve deep into these larger-than-life characters and expose the beating human heart within.
In conjunction with participating venues, we are aiming to improve our accessibility this tour with a BSL interpreter, and Audio Description.
We also provide FREE workshops for group bookings across the tour.
TOUR DATES to be announced in due course.
