Modernised ‘The Miser’ comes to the Market Theatre

The Market Theatre will present the Fortune Cookie Theatre Company’s production of Molière’s ‘The Miser’ from October 25 to December 9.
A deliciously mean comedy directed by Sylvaine Strike, ‘The Miser’ magnifies the madness of a father’s greed, paranoia and suspicion.
Two siblings, their respective lovers and a gaggle of oppressed servants all endure the ghastly avarice that is Harpagon’s…But for how much longer?

Strike’s Fortune Cookie Theatre Company is presenting a remarkably contemporary interpretation of Moliѐre’s timeless classic, written in 1668, as part of the France-South Africa Seasons 2012 & 2013.
Legendary designer Sarah Roberts dresses a company comprising of the crème of South African ingénues, including the likes of Mpho Osei-Tutu, Atandwa Kani and Kate Liquorish. Lionel Newton is at the helm in the hugely sought after role of Harpagon, the Miser.
