    This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière’s most probing and mature works. While it’s still an exemplar of 16th-century farce, Molière 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 Award-winning actor Brian Bedford.
