The Misanthrope
August 28 - September 28, 2018
The Misanthrope


Who you love is not a choice, and hypocrisy is often unavoidable. Featuring Danielle Cormack (Rake, Wentworth) as a woman who rejects false flattery, living in a fabulous society laden with insincerity. 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. In association with Griffin Theatre Company and directed by Griffin’s Artistic Director, Lee Lewis, this will mark the third time she has worked with talented Australian playwright, Justin Fleming for Bell Shakespeare (The School For Wives in 2012, and The Literati in 2016).
