About the Play:

Step into a world of biting absurdity and timeless truths with Molière in the Park’s “The Miser”, re-imagined for today’s world.

Molière in the Park is offering a full production of Molière’s “The Miser”. Written in 1668 and presented upward of 2500 times over the next 350 years at the Comédie Française alone, it is Molière’s most successful play, both in France and internationally. With this production, Molière in the Park will once again reinvent Molière for today’s world while also keeping with the desire to stay true to the original French. It will both lean into non-traditional casting choices, including casting women in male roles and swapping genders, to highlight persistent biases, deconstruct existing power dynamics, and look into the barrel of existential paranoia and greed.
