Dark days have come for Winchell, our modern day miser. He is faced with the most dynamic situation of his life: he must woo his wife back so he won’t have to pay her out in divorce court, and cure his recently engaged daughter Emily of the matrimonial urge, so he won’t have to pay for a wedding – ever! A cheeky and irreverent romp into the lives of one entrepreneurial Winnipeg family.
Carolyn Gray’s modern version of Molière’s classic satire is part screwball comedy and part sex farce – it’s erratic, irrational and unconventional. Expect spit takes, slapstick, verbal sparring and a whole lot of doors! Exploring family, love and money, The Miser of Middlegate expertly balances humour while sharply critiquing our culture obsessed with acquisition.
We've been working long hours in the last few days incorporating the set and technical elements into this amazing play. After watching it over and over for a month straight I am still laughing! It's not to be missed! If you live in the Winnipeg area I highly recommend coming out to see this show.
