The Misanthrope

Presented by MSU Department of Theatre

Arena Theatre

By Molière

Translated by Constance Congdon

Directed by Dan Smith

This French classic is a comedy of manners about friendship and love in a world of absolute power enforced through surveillance. While his friends and rivals wield wit for sport and use compliments as commerce, Alceste’s dissenting voice seeks truth at all costs.


The ticket office at the Arena Theatre opens one hour prior to the show with doors opening 30 minutes prior. It close 5 minutes after the posted start time as late seating beyond that point will disrupt the performers and fellow audience members.
