Quintessence Theatre, who did that Arms and the Man I didn’t like very much, produced, with the same cast, a production of Martin Crimp’s adaptation of Moliere’s The Misanthrope.

Michael Billington gave a fairly down-the-nose review of the adaptation (not this production of it). I find some value in it. This touches on the question of why we adapt classics in the first place – the answer hopefully not being “because we can’t think of any new stories.”
