About this audiobook

Razor-sharp wit inflames a competitive game of survival in the salons of 17th century France where, in this world of “finest appearances,” one man’s blunt honesty shatters his society’s delicate web of manners. Often considered to be Molière’s Hamlet, The Misanthrope is a wickedly scathing satire. Translated by Richard Wilbur. A Court Theatre co-production.

An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring:

Harry Althaus as Acaste
Amy Farrington as Éliante
Bradford Farwell as Philinte

Kevin Gudahl as Alceste
Ora Jones as Arsinoé
Chad Kelderman as Dubois
John Reeger as Oronte
