About the show

You don’t get rich by giving money away, and doesn’t Harpagon know it. Gripped by greed he’s unwilling to part with a penny, and is keen to get his children married to some opulent suitors so they can’t lay claim to his hoard. Yet his children don’t quite agree, and when they try to follow their heart rather than his purse-strings, will Harpagon change his habits and let passion find a way, or will he strike them clean from his ledger?

What to expect from The Miser

Starring the actor, writer, presenter and double Olivier winning Griff Rhys Jones and directed by Sean Foley, this is a major revival of French playwright Molière’s 1668 comedy. Expect a speedy blend of satire and farce headed by a fantastic lead in Jones. Sean Foley’s also a talented comedy director, having taken the wheel of The Ladykillers a few years ago, and more recently The Painkiller and Jeeves and Wooster.

Reviews of The Miser

“'Fresh, funny, farcical and splendidly silly.”

Jane KempWhatsonstage


A high-octane show with a superabundance of physical comedy. I laughed a lot'

Interesting facts about The Miser

•    Molière was the stage name of Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, considered to be a master of comedy in Western literature. He enjoyed the favours of the French court and Parisian society, though he was often critcised by the Catholic Church
•    The Miser (L’Avare in French) has been adapted almost as frequently as it’s been revived because the language of the play requires a liberal interpretation to retain its humour
•    The play borrows from the Italian commedia dell’arte tradition as well as Aulularia by Roman playwright Plautus
