NATIONAL ODYSSEY | D. MARIA II NATIONAL THEATER
It’s opening night. The Misanthrope, by Molière, will be performed for the first time in Portugal before the King and the entire court and the show is far from ready.
There is a group of actors, together for mysterious and diverse reasons, with their nerves on edge, willing to do a lot – or everything – even before Molière’s blows are heard.
There is a man who has an aversion to human beings, who does not like social interaction, who is melancholic, unsociable, misanthropic, obnoxious, a snitch. (in Priberam dictionary)
There is, above all, the fervent desire to attend court and please the King.
The crucial question is: “What happy chance brought you to this place?”
