  2. Skinflints and Scoundrels: Molière's Miser

    Skinflints and Scoundrels: Molière's Miser

    Translated, adapted and arranged by Suzan Zeder from The Miser by Molière.

    This new translation and adaptation of Molière's classic comedy, The Miser, is set in the opulent court of King Louis XIV at the Palace of Versailles. Zeder takes us back to a time when this classic play was first conceived—when actors struggled to remember their newly minted lines and bits of business were improvised for the first time. In this raucous telling, she captures the comic power of this cautionary tale of misguided monetary mania and defines the priceless power of the creative artist and the alchemy of theatre. Learn More

    This dramatic adaptation, sprinkled with comedic commentary, is a winner for elementary, middle, and early high school. Shakespeare's Scottish tragedy is told within a lively and humorous story-theatre frame. Macbeth and his Lady covet the crown while witches, ghosts, kings and soldiers sweep across the landscape, carving out the battle between good and evil. Shakespeare characters speak the Bard's words, while storytellers fill in plot and comment wryly on the escalating action. Learn More
