The cast also includes Tate Ellington (John), Jennifer Mudge (Araminta) and Samantha Soule (Liz).
According to Roundabout, "Written as a response to Molière's The Misanthrope, Hampton's biting bourgeois comedy examines the empty, insular lives of college intellectuals. At the center of the story is Philip (Broderick), a professor who seems almost absurdly removed from the political turmoil surrounding him, including the assassination of the Prime Minister and his cabinet."
Hampton is a Tony Award winner and an Academy Award winner. His credits include Sunset Boulevard and Les Liaisons Dangereuses.
