Synopsis & Cast
When the family of a wealthy geezer gets wind of his imminent demise, an exuberant and hilarious struggle breaks out to get hold of his estate. In this tour de force of rhyming couplets and period costumes, comic suspense reigns. Will money, low cunning, or love triumph? From the playwright of New Jerusalem, The Liar, and Venus in Fur, this modern farce in the tradition of Molière crackles with humor, poetry, and romance. Directed by M. Craig Getting and starring Chris Anthony as Eraste, Leonard C. Haas as Geronte, Adam Hammet as Scruple, Dave Johnson as Crispin, Mary Martello as Madame Argante, Lee Minora as Lisette, and Ruby Wolf as Isabelle. more info
