CTC Theatre

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Comedie Francais: Le Misanthrope at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

"Mankind has grown so base, I mean to break with the whole human race."

Much to the horror of his friends and companions, Alceste rejects la politesse - the social conventions of the seventeenth-century French salon. His refusal to "make nice" makes him tremendously unpopular and he laments his isolation in a world he sees as superficial and base. Despite this, Alcest loves Célimène, a flirtatious woman from Parisian high society. He loathes this world for its hypocritical etiquette but, shaken by a public trial he is called to by this social circle, he must visit Célimène to ask for her help…
