The Miser / The Idiot

Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Molière

Translated by Ranjit Bolt
PaperBack (02 May 2001)
L’Avare (1666) is Molière’s great satire on materialism, a funny yet sophisticated story of cunning, guile and double-dealing, not only by the Miser himself, but also by the Miser’s family and servants. First performed at the Festival Theatre, Chichester in 1995, it was revived at the Salisbury Playhouse in April 2001.

Includes L’Etourdi (1653), the first, the fastest, and perhaps the funniest of Molière’s verse comedies, in a new and highly entertaining translation.
