The Miser Tickets, London West End
Sean Foley (The Painkiller) directs Griff Rhys Jones and Lee Mack in an adaptation of Moliere's classic comedy The Miser at London's Garrick Theatre. Adapted by Foley and Phil Porter, The Miser is the rip-roaring comedy from one of France's greatest dramatists. A major revival that is sure to rock the West End, The Miser begins previews on March 1st, with an official opening on March 13th 2017.
First performed in 1668, The Miser is the well-known comedy by French playwright Moliere, who also penned classics such as Tartuffe and The Misanthrope. The Miser follows the paranoid Harpagon, who is extremely fanatical about protecting his abundant wealth. Suspecting everyone as trying to steal his fortune, Harpagon will quite literally go to any length to protect his pennies.
Setting his sights on rich spouses for his children, he struggles when their true feelings about his skinflint nature are revealed. But what will prevail? Will it be the love for his money or for his children? Passions and purse-strings go head to head in this perfectly poignant comedy, starring Griff Rhys Jones as Harpagon.
The Miser played limited seasons at the Bath Theatre Royal and Richmond Theatre prior to its West End run at the Garrick Theatre. Following from political drama This House, The Miser will be a welcome comic turn, due to run from March 1st to June 10th 2017.
