This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Moliere's most probing and mature works. While it's still an exemplar of 16th century farce, Moliere went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony(R) Award-winning actor Brian Bedford.
