The Miser Play explores the foibles of greed

One of Moliere’s greatest plays will come to life on the Culbreth Theatre stage in the U.Va. drama department’s production of “The Miser,” which runs through Nov.17 and Nov. 28 through Dec. 1 at 8 p.m.

The play exaggerates a family’s portrayals of selfishness and scheming, paranoia and secrets. It stars three Master of Fine Arts candidates: Jason Kehler in the title role of Harpagon, Chris Harcum as his son Cleante, and Laura Tetlow as Frosine the matchmaker.

Director Sabin Eptein, a professional director and member of the theatrical staff at the University of Southern California, gives the mid-17th-century satire a hundred years’ update, setting it in post-revolutionary France.

This play shows the conflict between generations; the father and son (Harpagon and Cleante) are different thinkers, and you can even see the difference in their costumes, Epstein said.

Tickets for the play are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $6 or 6 ARTS$ dollars for students. Call the drama department box office at 924-3376, Mon.-Fri., 1-6 p.m.
