Who you love is not a choice, and hypocrisy is often unavoidable.
She is savvy and sophisticated, rejecting the sycophancy and superficiality of society. Instead she calls the world like she sees it, with all the brave and brutal honesty that implies.
He is young and beautiful, wrapped up in a society driven by a rumour-mill that never stops turning, where compliments are commerce and honesty is unwelcome.
She captivates him with her honesty and frankness, but does he really love her, or is he being a little loose with the truth? This is the world of The Misanthrope.
Featuring Danielle Cormack (Rake, Wentworth) as a woman who rejects false flattery, living in a fabulous society laden with insincerity. Moliere - one of the greatest masters of comedy, has created a glorious satire of polite society. This is a world of beautiful people, with a shiny veneer and a priority on social graces.
In association with Griffin Theatre Company and directed by Griffin's Artistic Director, Lee Lewis, this will mark the third time she works with talented Australian playwright, Justin Fleming for Bell Shakespeare (The School For Wives in 2012, and The Literati in 2016).
