Starring two-time Olivier Award winner Griff Rhys Jones, Molière’s comic masterpiece The Miser arrives on London’s West End in 2017 in a brand-new adaptation by Sean Foley and Phil Porter.

Griff Rhys Jones (Not the Nine O’Clock News, Three Men in a Boat, An Absolute Turkey) stars as Harpagon, a very wealthy and very paranoid man who will do whatever he can to protect his money. Desperate not to sacrifice a penny of his fortune even to his own offspring, he sets about trying to pair his children up with wealthy spouses. However, when real identities and feelings are laid bare will Harpagon prioritise his riches over his children’s happiness?

Penned by France’s most celebrated playwright and first performed almost 350 years ago, this latest production of The Miser (L’Avare) is a major revival of the classic comedy. Directed by Sean Foley (The Painkiller, The Ladykillers, Jeeves and Wooster), Molière’s brilliant play is as ribald, as side-splittingly funny and as astute as ever, revealing an obsession bordering on madness and a message about our relationship with money that is as relevant now as it was hundreds of years ago.

With tickets sure to be like gold dust, book your seats for The Miser at the Garrick Theatre today.
