Synopsis

This adaptation is a version for young people of the well-known French satire. Harpagon employs a matchmaker to find him a rich wife. He then sets out to marry his daughter off to a rich old man, and his son to a plump, well-endowed widow. But the young people have ideas of their own and engage Harpagon's resourceful Steward on their side. At Harpagon's expense, they prepare a lavish banquet in honor of his engagement, and in his presence shower rich gifts on his fiancée. At the height of this, Harpagon's money is reported stolen. Giving up all pretense of civility, he bemoans his misery and relinquishes his fiancée, if he can only be reunited with his beloved money. When the money is restored to him, he returns to his penny-pinching ways.
