L'Avare (The Miser) by Moliere at the Barons Court Theatre
Something Wicked Theatre present L'Avare (The Miser) by Moliere, at the Barons Court Theatre, in West Kensington, London, from 11 to 30 Oct 2011.
Something Wicked Theatre stage a new production of Moliere's best-known play in French. This comedy of manners is set in a contemporary banking milieu where millions are made and lost at the touch of a computer-screen.

The play therefore shows this 17-century farce to be as relevant now as it ever was
