A satirical look at 17th Century French aristocracy - how wonderful!
Keeping Molière’s tradition of biting sarcasm and fast-paced social commentary, this new translation of his masterpiece The Misanthrope thrusts its world of players into current day London. When a playwright with the “unfashionable habit of speaking his mind” becomes enamoured with a self-serving American film star, the results unveil the deception and decadence of the modern High Court.
Sunday Matinee price is $17.75. Tickets are available from Tix on the Square at http://www.tixonthesquare.ca/event/run/detail/560/.
Look for the large Orangey Yellow Flower (the Chrysanthemum
not the Sunflower) near the entrance or in the admission line.
I will be there at 1:30 PM, probably standing in the
admission line so I can save seats.
After the play we will head over to The Accent Lounge for
beverages, snacks and post play analysis.
