About this show

The American Repertory Theatre presents Moliere's The Miser, adapted by David Ball. The old skinflint Harpagon has decided it's time to marry off his children. He's found an old man who won't demand a dowry for his daughter, Elise, and a rich widow for his son, Cleante. But Elise is already in love with Harpagon's servant, Valere. And Cleante, who spends money as passionately as his father hoards it, is enamoured of the penniless Mariane. Harpagon, however, has already decided to take Mariane for his own wife. Convinced his children are plotting to rob him blind, he proceeds with his own arrangements until, to his horror, he discovers that the fortune he buried in his garden has been stolen. Directed by Dominique Serrrand.
