Newly adapted by Sean Foley and Phil Porter, Griff Rhys Jones will be joined by BAFTA and British Comedy Award winning comedian Lee Mack, who will be making his West End debut.
Fanatical about protecting his wealth, the paranoid Harpagon (Griff Rhys Jones) suspects all of trying to flinch his fortune and will go to any length to protect it. A matchmaker motivated only by money, he sets his sights on wealthy spouses for his children, so his riches are safe from their grubby hands. As true feelings and identities are revealed will Harpagon allow his children to follow their heart, or will his love of gold prove all-consuming? Passion and purse strings go head to head in this rip roaring comedy, by France’s greatest dramatist.

Great to see the stars in this show, a bit old school slapstick, unecessarily so at times, but a good afternoon out.

Thought it was very funny and one of the best plays I have seen.
MR D REDDY5th June
A great performance by all concerned in the production. Gryff Rhys Jones was outstanding and I hope we get more opportunities to both enjoy and appreciate his talent.
John Philip SHUKER4th June
Excellent production and entertainment. Main adverse criticism is that one of two of the female actors were difficult to understand at times-particularly the accented enunciation of Harpagan's daughter.
Morag McCallum4th June

Sally Taylor4th June

loraine moore4th June
I found the production poor. The younger actors affecting speech impediments as part of the role simply made themselves inaudible. It just didnt gel. Lee Mack was funny tho. Just pleased i didnt go for the expensive seats. Sorry.
marion shuster4th June
They really brought Moliere to life. Very funny and most enjoyable.
Sheila Bacon2nd June
It seemed slow to start, a bit pantomime. Then it started to get really very good. Lee Mack was excellent. Ryan Gage virtually stole the show, with his outrageous character. A cross between Rik Mayall and Russell Brand. Overall, well worth going.
Deborah Hamilton2nd June
Great story, costumes, set, performance by Jones, Mack and others. Some actors shouted rather than projected
Zdenka Beck-Bauer2nd June
Superb, we absolutely loved it.
