The Misanthrope

…Call it insanity. But I take issue with the whole of humanity.

The Misanthrope – A dark, biting comedy interwoven with a fresh indy soundtrack performed live one of Plymouth’s brightest young bands, Orange Pip The Scientist (6music- Unsigned Band of the week) who interact with the stage action.
