Washington Shakespeare Company presents Molieré's The Miser, adapted by David Ball, and directed by Akiva Fox. A ruthless moneygrubber controls the strings to his purse as tightly as the reins of his household. But can this forerunner of the modern CEO keep his children in check as well as his own desires when love is added to the mix? WSC's The Miser examines the frailties and foibles of one man's quest to secure his fortune at the expense of those he loves. But just as art imitates life, a bailout arrives just in time to rescue this farce from disaster.
