Kanjoos - The Miser
Molière's classic comedy The Miser is transported from 17th century France to modern day India in Tara Arts new stage adaptation Kanjoos (Hindi for Miser).
In the money-mad maelstrom of modern India lurks Harjinder makhi-choos (flea-sucking miser). He is a man obsessed with hoarding his wealth by adhering strictly to his interpretation of the principles of Gandhi minimum dress and food, the principles of relentless self-sacrifice and raw frugality.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 Bollywood life-style of Mumbai.
This 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.
Antony Bunsee (Hollyoaks, My Family and Eastenders) plays the flea-sucking miser, Harjinder. The production also features the beautiful vocals of Sohini Alam who with a band of live musicians perform classic and modern Bollywood songs.
