Money, money, money. It’s his rich man’s world…

A comic parody inspired by the characters of commedia dell’arte, in which the servants work tirelessly for the miserly Harpagon. The Miser is insanely paranoid, possessive and protective of everything in his sight, above all his wealth. This twist on Molieres’ classic play is farcical, hilarious and terrifying.

Warnings: Ages 14+.
