GRIFF RHYS JONES STARS ALONGSIDE LEE MACK IN MOLIÈRE'S CLASSIC COMEDY THE MISER
Actor, writer, presenter, comedian and two-time Olivier award-winner Griff Rhys Jones returns to the West End alongside BAFTA and British Comedy Award winning comedian Lee Mack, who is making his West End debut in this hilarious new adaption by Sean Foley and Phil Porter of Moliere’s classic comedy, The Miser opening at the Garrick Theatre from 1 March 2017.
Griff Rhys Jones has most recently been seen on stage as Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s Oliver, and previously in Feydeau’s An Absolute Turkey.
Lee Mack is best known for his television and stand-up work. He is team captain on popular BBC panel show Would I Lie To You and a regular host on Have I Got News For You, Nevermind the Buzzcocks and 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
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.
This major revival is directed by Sean Foley (The Painkiller, The Ladykillers, Jeeves and Wooster), with further star casting to be announced. Book now to be among the very first to see this major revival.
