    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
