Michaelmas Week 4
The MISANTHROPE by Moliere, verse translation by Tony Harrison
Fitzpatrick Hall, Queens' College | Week 4 Mainshow
2nd - 6th November
"Let real feelings shine out through our speech, a deep sincerity where guile can't reach."
Widely regarded as Molière's masterpiece, The Misanthrope is a wickedly scathing satire of high society. Still bitingly relevant today, it enjoyed huge success in the West End earlier this year.
In this brilliant translation by Tony Harrison, the urban, young intelligentsia jostle for status and respect in 1960s Paris. Decide for yourself whether Alceste,the proverbial misanthrope, is an honest man surrounded by flattering sycophants or an arrogant idealistic fool.
