By Moliere, translated and adapted by Tony Harrison. Alceste is the original misanthrope: he rants against human hypocrisy and saves his most pointed attacks for those around him. Whether friend or foe, he is determined to be honest, no matter what it costs. But Alceste is in love with Celimene, who does not appear to be as pure and virtuous as she seems. With David Schofield, Alan Cox, Maria Miles, Randel Herley, Brigit Forsyth and Michael Begley. Director Nandita Ghose.
