The Miser (L’Avare) is Moliere’s great satire on materialism, a funny yet sophisticated story of cunning, guile and double-dealing, not only by the Miser himself, but also by the Miser’s family and servants. First performed at the Festival Theatre, Chichester in 1995, it was revived at the Salisbury Playhouse in April 2001. Includes The Idiot ( L’Etourdi), the first, the fastest, and perhaps the funniest of Moliere’s verse comedies, in a new and highly entertaining translation.
