At the webpage of Grenland Friteater the following, among other things, is written about The Miser:

"Is it possible to be so greedy you will marry your only daughter off to a man who is old and stubborn, but rich? To become so greedy you try to steal your son's girlfriend, not because you love her, but because her low-cost lifestyle makes her a suitable bride?

When father and son all of a sudden hunt in the same fields, the activity-filed house turns up its pace, with unpredictable servants, dubious friends, loan sharks, go-betweens entering the game with escalating speed. Who is really the greediest? Doesn't greed operate in different disguises?

The 344 year old classic is actually about love, too. Will the young ones, who really love each other, get each other in the end? Or will gold and greed win out?"
