WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In a society where social graces reign supreme, the cynical Alceste causes a scandal when he refuses to play his part in the charade. Torn between his love for the coquettish Célimène and the pretenses he so despises, Alceste finds himself alone in a world where words are brandished like weapons and status is defined by style. Unwilling to play the hypocrite any longer, Alceste must decide his destiny. Artistic Director Charles Newell made his Chicago debut in 1993 with a revelatory production of Marivaux's The Triumph of Love, establishing Court's reputation for a sophisticated, emotionally complex approach to classic verse text. Newell returns to his roots in the French Baroque with this wickedly funny and dangerous comedy of manners.
