John Bell returns to the company that bears his name to play one of Moliere’s most memorable creations – Harpagon, a man so cheap he’d steal oats from his horse before seeing a dollar spent.
Stingy, avaricious and obnoxious, Harpagon loves nothing more than his beloved cash – not even his own children. With his eye on the prize – an inappropriately young bride who already has her sights set on his son – the old miser is prepared to sacrifice his children and his dignity to win it all.
Peter Evans directs this Justin Fleming translation of a 17th century comic masterpiece. Michelle Doake, Harriet Gordon-Anderson, Elizabeth Nabben, Sean O’Shea, Jamie Oxenbould, Russell Smith, Damien Strouthos and Jessica Tovey feature.
