A Scots version of Molière's Le Misanthrope.
Le Misanthrope is a bitter comedy about a worldly sophisticate who cannot help telling uncomfortable truths about his fellow men – and women, with one of whom, despite himself, he is deeply and painfully in love. Lochhead transmutes the characters into media rats in present-day Scotland, injecting the vigour of her own comedies – with an added layer of biting satire.
