Miseryguts & Tartuffe : Two plays by Moli re Paperback / softback
by Liz Lochhead
New Liz Lochhead comedy - a Scots version of Moliere's Misanthrope - to coincide with premiere at Edinburgh Lyceum One of Scotland's most popular writers, the multi-award winning Liz Lochhead, takes on Moliere's most famous play.
Le Misanthrope is a bitter comedy about a sophisticated Parisian who cannot help telling uncomfortable truths about his fellow men.
Lochhead transposes the setting to present-day Scotland - and instantly injects the zest and vigour typical of her own comedies, most notably Perfect Days.
The world premiere of Misery Guts is at the Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh, on 23 March 2002.
Also in the volume is Liz Lochhead's other 'Scottish Moliere', her version of Tartuffe, first seen ten years ago and now something of a classic.
