Celimene and  AlcesteAlceste decides he will live and speak only the truth, but, alas, he is hindered by the hypocrisy of his social circle and the machinations of love. He is also humbled by his own double standard. He falls in love with a lovely woman who epitomes the falseness he despises. When he and his friends gather, it makes for one satiric cocktail party.

Eric C Stein and Laura Malkus lead the talented cast also featuring Rich Espey, Cherie Weinert, Daniel Douek, Jessica Behar, Adam Bloedorn and Matthew Shea.
