Autumn Season 2009

An updated version of Moliere's original play of the same title.

'This is not just an updating of Moliere's great social tragicomedy but a thrillingly sophisticated modern version of a classical play…The writing is cool, sharp and ferociously funny'. The Sunday Times

Transferring the action of Moliere's original from 17th Century France to contemporary London, Crimp explores the hypocrisy and indifference of a world in which morality and truth prove little more than the relics of a bygone age.
