THE MISANTHROPE

What?

The CSUSM Visual & Performing Arts Department presents "The Misanthrope," a theater performance:

Perhaps discouraged by the 1666 banning of Tartuffe, a play many found offensive because of its assault on church hypocrisy, Molière embarked on a more serious study of human relationships with The Misanthrope. He does poke fun at French aristocracy, but this satire is overshadowed by Molière's attention to those human flaws to which all are subject. Although Molière typically worked within certain stylistic and traditional constraints, he was unique in his quest to experiment and to create new types of theater. The Misanthrope demonstrates Molière's twisting of the traditional farce or satire, which typically used flat stereotypes to make a broad comment on social or political issues.
