SYNOPSIS: Harpagon loves money and where there is money, there is Harpagon. There is also trouble. Harpagon, a wealthy and avaricious widower, wants to marry Marianne, but Marianne loves Harpagon's son, Cleante, and sometimes, the heart wants what it wants. The entanglements continue. Harpagon intends to marry his daughter Elise off to an old and wealthy widower, Signor Anselm, but Elise is in love with Valere, a young man of noble birth who is a steward in Harpagon's household. Hidden identities, banned love, and a stolen money box soon cause a conflagration of laugh out loud comedy and knockout fun. Will young love win out? Maybe. Will the love of family show Harpagon that money is not the most important thing? No. It's Moliere, not Oprah.
