In this delightful 17th-century French comedy -- told with Molière's wit and reset in the modern era by the Theatre School of DePaul University -- the cynical Alceste causes a scandal when he refuses to fit in with superficial society. Despite his distaste for social graces, he remains torn between his love for the flirtatious Célimène, who embodies everything he despises about society, and his own convictions. Unsettled by her flirtations with other men, the cantankerous lover suggests they run away together and start a new life. See this creative adaptation of The Misanthrope at Fullerton Stage on DePaul's Lincoln Park Campus.
Running time is 104 minutes.
