  • Overview

    By Molière
    Translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur
    Directed Joseph Hanreddy

    The Misanthrope follows the hilariously thorny love life of the irascible Alceste and the coquettish Célimène, who put the concept of “opposites attract” to the ultimate test. Richard Wilbur’s masterful translation of Molière’s wryly personal comedy begs the question: Can love really be this blind?
