The Word is Absurd

Le Mis(anthrope)

Written by Moliere

Directed by Mark Prascak

At the Adams House Dining Hall

Thursday and Friday

MOLIERE was a rhyme-happy guy;

He coupleted his lines to be wry.

Though some think he was a bit trite,

I still rather like the playwright.

The Misanthrope I think to be a fine play,

Though I admit the verse can sometimes be fey.

It's about poor Alceste (Sean Sebastian), who is smitten

By the charms of Celimene (Ginna Carter), a local society kitten.

He generously offers his love,

Yet she coldly turns him away with a shove.
