Written as a response to Moliere's "The Misanthrope," this comedy examines the empty, insular lives of college intellectuals. At the center of the story is Philip, a professor who seems almost absurdly removed from the political turmoil surrounding him, including the assassination of the Prime Minister and his cabinet.

For The Record:

"The Philanthropist" premiered in London at the Royal court in 1970.  It opened on Broadway on Mar 15, 1971 at the Ethel Barrymore under the auspices of David Merrick.  Robert Kidd directed a cast which featured Alec McCowen as Philip.
