Directed by Sylvaine Strike
25 October to 09 December 12
A deliciously mean comedy, directed by Sylvaine Strike, Moliѐre’s The Miser magnifies the madness of a father’s greed, paranoia and suspicion.
Two siblings, their respective lovers and a gaggle of oppressed servants all endure the ghastly avarice that is Harpagon’s… But for how much longer?
Sylvaine Strike’s Fortune Cookie Theatre Company is back for the South African French Season in its remarkably contemporary interpretation of Moliѐre’s timeless classic, written in 1668.
Legendary designer Sarah Roberts dresses a company comprising of the crème of South African ingénues, including the likes of Mpho Osei-Tutu, Atandwa Kani and Kate Liquorish. Lionel Newton is at the helm in the hugely sought after role of Harpagon, the Miser.
