Why See The Miser?
What did you say about misers and their miserly ways?
Griff Rhys Jones returns to the West End for the first time in five years to star in Sean Foley's adaptation of Moliere's farcical portrait of a family at war over true love and the penny-pinching avarice of their father, the titular miser. Comedian Lee Mack will be making his West End in this ensemble cast alongside Gavin and Stacey alumnus Mathew Horne.
The tyrannical patriarch Harpagon is obsessed with money, gaining it, lending it, burying it in his garden, much to the detriment of his relationship with his children, Cleante and Elise. When both of them fall in love and wish to marry, he deems their chosen matches unsuitable and forbids it.
When his faithful valet gets wind of his master's dissatisfaction, the three team up to try and come up a scheme to topple the miser and get their own way, for once!
