Miguel del Arco directs a new version of Moliere’s ‘The Misanthrope,’ a classic which forces us to wonder what honesty truly is. And it does so with humor, at a dizzying pace.
Our protagonist, Alceste, longs to live in truth. He wants to be honest and sincere, and to be treated the same way by others. But like every other human being, he is chock-full of contradictions. And it is these contradictions – and his inability to strike a balance in life – that lead him to set off into the desert.
