About the event

Who you love is not a choice, and hypocrisy is often unavoidable.

She is a savvy sophisticate who rejects sycophants. He is young, beautiful, and wrapped up in a society where compliments are commerce and honesty is unwelcome. The Misanthrope is a world of beautiful people, with a shiny veneer and a priority on social graces.

Molière, one of the greatest masters of comedy, has created a glorious satire of polite society. Featuring Danielle Cormack (Rake, Wentworth) as a woman who rejects false flattery, living in a fabulous society laden with insincerity.

In association with Griffin Theatre Company

“As France’s answer to Shakespeare, Molière’s works are too enticing not to programme.”

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR PETER EVANS

"Danielle Cormack is brilliant...giving a blisteringly good performance"

AUSTRALIAN STAGE

"A bracingly fresh yet remarkably faithful remix of Molière’s great play"
