A celebrated playwright uses his acerbic wit and scathing critiques to unleash his discontent at humanity. Unsettled by his movie actress girlfriend’s continued flirtation with other men, he suggests running away and starting a new life free from the superficiality, hypocrisy, and immorality of modern society. Celebrated British playwright Martin Crimp (ATTEMPTS ON HER LIFE, THE COUNTRY, IN THE REPUBLIC OF HAPPINESS) moves Molière’s social satire from 17th century France to 21st century London, sharpening the bite of one of the world’s most controversial and humorous playwrights.
