Post Show Talk - Thu 16 Apr
The Theatre Royal Plymouth Young Company Presents
Adapted by Martin Crimp
A dark, biting comedy interwoven with a fresh indie soundtrack performed live by one of Plymouth’s brightest young bands, Orange Pip The Scientist (6music- Unsigned Band of the week) who interact with the stage action. The Misanthrope is Moliere’s masterpiece, brought bang up to date into the world of London’s Brit Art brat pack by Martin Crimp. A witty and playful exploration of the blurred boundaries of modern life between good and bad in art, culture and morality.
“…………Call it insanity
But I take issue with the whole of humanity”
Is Britney better than Beethoven?
Is Paris Hilton more fascinating than say Martin Crimp? (“Who?”- “Well Exactly!”).
Alceste is making a stand against…well everyone. He’s fed up with a world infatuated with celebrity. It makes him sick, but what is really making him sicker is that he’s in love with Jennifer, a twenty year old movie star and the icon and pin-up for the prurient pop world he despises.
The Young Company Shows are open to people ages 13-25. Membership is £6 year. Auditions for the Misanthrope are on the weekend of 21st and 22nd of February 2009.
