About The Play
Alceste is full of rightful disdain for the hypocrisy and social norms of his contemporaries. Ironically, he is madly in love with the queen of social butterflies, Célimène, a radiant seductress who deftly navigates the incessant chatter of her friend network in her endless quest for independence.
When Alceste suddenly decides that Célimène must choose between him and her frivolous world, well, in true Molière comedic style, the clash and its aftermaths are like nothing he could have predicted.
About Molière in the Park
Molière in the Park is driven by the conviction that neighborhoods with easy, regular and affordable access to theater are breeding grounds for thriving individuals, families and communities. We believe theater promotes health and hope. It encourages communal reflection and fosters empathy as a core value. It is one of the cornerstones of a functioning society.
Founded in 2018 by Lucie Tiberghien and Garth Belcon, MIP is now becoming an annual staple of Brooklyn’s foray into summer, and is the sole company in the borough dedicated to bringing FREE theater of the highest caliber to all of the people of Brooklyn, annually.
