What value does the truth hold? Alceste fervently believes that honesty is always the best policy, but finds that not everyone agrees with him – including the woman he loves. This comedy of manners from 17th-century French playwright Moliere explores still-timely issues relating to truth, fidelity, and hypocrisy. Can an honest man find love and happiness in a world in which lying is expected, if not necessarily admired?
