A powerful anatomy of misogyny, by 'one of the most significant new Irish writers of his generation' (Sunday Times).

Strongly influenced by religious and folk ritual, Michael Harding's near-monologue, full of erotic imagery, offers the opportunity for a tour-de-force for a male actor.

Misogynist was first performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in October 1990 as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival.
