Actor, writer, presenter, comedian and two-time Olivier Award winner Griff Rhys Jones returns to the stage in a hilarious new adaptation of Moliere’s classic comedy, The Miser. Griff has most recently been seen onstage as Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s Oliver!, and previously in Feydeau’s An Absolute Turkey.
Fanatical about protecting his wealth, the paranoid Harpagon (Griff Rhys Jones) suspects all of trying to filch his fortune and will go to any length to protect it. A matchmaker motivated only by money, he sets his sights on wealthy spouses for his children, so his riches are safe from their grubby hands.
As true feelings and identities are revealed will Harpagon allow his children to follow their heart, or will his love of gold prove all-consuming? Passion and purse strings go head to head in this rip roaring comedy, by France’s greatest dramatist.
This major revival is directed by Sean Foley (The Dresser, The Ladykillers, Jeeves and Wooster) starring Lee Mack, Matthew Horne, Katy Wix and Ryan Gage. Book now to be among the very first to see this major revival.
