All hell breaks loose in the form of iambic pentameter in this modern American retelling of Moliere's classic set against the backdrop of Washington D.C. Alceste hates the falseness of human behavior. Celemine is a consummate flirt. He's a poet and columnist; she's a lobbyist -- but somehow, this unlikely couple is in love. And, as though their differing outlooks on life don't make things difficult enough, their relationship is complicated by multiple love triangles in the epicenter of political pretense and double-dealings.
