Molière’s five-act satirical comedy first took the stage in Paris in 1666. While not a commercial success, the Misanthrope is known today as Molière’s best work. “The Misanthrope” (or ‘The Cantankerous Lover”) pokes fun at the hypocrisy of French aristocracy and, while humorous, also draws attention to flaws of humanity. Is false flattery kind or morally wrong?
“The Misanthrope” is a closed production for GCE and GCU employees, students and faculty members.
