Act 1 to Present One of the Funniest Plays in Dramatic Literature

Professor Wayne S. Turney directs Molière’s “The Miser” in the intimate Schubert Theatre

Take advantage of the substantial discounts enjoyed by DSU faculty, staff, and students: only $7 for students and $12 for faculty and staff!

Laughter abounds as Act 1 DeSales University Theatre opens its second stage season with Molière’s fabulous French farce, The Miser, adapted by renowned playwright and actor Miles Malleson. The hilarious comedy will be presented October 16 to 26, 2014 in the intimate Schubert Theatre of the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts.

The story focuses on the aging but vital Harpagon, a man is so cheap he’d swipe the pennies off a dead man’s eyes. He rules his roost with an iron fist. His children are commodities to be used, through pre-arranged marriages, to increase his wealth. His son Cléante has fallen in love with the beautiful but penniless Mariane, and his daughter, Elise, is secretly promised to wed Valère, a young charmer of unknown parentage. When Harpagon unveils his marital designs, his children, their suitors, and the disgruntled servants conspire to foil the miser before the marriages can take place. The delirious plot spirals to a wildly comic finish, filled with all the masterful plot twists and sparkling comedy one would expect from one of Molière’s finest plays.

Molière himself played the role of Harpagon, a character that paved the way for many “misers” to follow, from Dickens’ Scrooge to comedian Jack Benny, who have long been objects of our laughter.

Associate professor of theatre Wayne S. Turney, who has played Harpagon in the past, directs the production. “This is my third go at this wonderful script and, after nearly forty years, I’m still discovering new insights, pearls of wisdom and—yes—laughs in it,” says Turney. I’m blessed with a terrific cast that play a myriad of zanies and lovers in a romp that still delights after four centuries.”

Please be advised that the Labuda Box Office does not accept the 3D card.
