The Miser

25 Oct 2012 - 09 Dec 2012

Venue: Barney Simon
Duration: 120 minutes with interval
Age Restriction: All Ages

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.  The Miser opens 25th October in the Barney Simon, Market Theatre.
