Kanjoos - the Miser by Moliere
adapted by Hardeep Singh Kohli & Jatinder Verma
from a literal translation by Patricia Dreyfus.
26th September - 13th October at Tara Arts
Moliere's classic comedy Kanjoos (Hindi for "miser") is transported from 17th century France to modern India.
In the money-mad maelstrom of modern Mumbai lurks Harjinder makhi choos ("flea-sucking miser"). A man obsessed with hoarding his wealth by adhereing strictly to Gandhi's principles of minimum dress and food. Harjinder hates spending money with a passion, whether it be on his household or his children who themselves are desperate for marriage and obsessed with the "Bolly" lifestyle of Mumbai.
This new version of Moliere's classic farce is a comedy for our times. When the age of austerity is pitched firmly up against the ever increasing desire to consume, sparks will fly.
