‘The Misanthrope’: Behind the Camera

A dive into Drama's first virtual production

After having to postpone last year’s Spring Play, Mamma Mia, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the MV Drama department has put together and released its first virtual play: “The Misanthrope.” Loosely set in the 17th-18th century, the sarcastic French-inspired comedy follows the pursuit of the female lead, Célimène, by several suitors, who metaphorically mask their true natures in how they present themselves. Learn more below about how the Advanced Drama Honors class produced this year’s play amid remote learning conditions.
