“Our working on The Miser by Moliére was a difficult and exciting task for all of us. We understood that money gives Harpagon the power over his household where with its help he creates the atmosphere of terror. In the result of this, the atmosphere of secrecy is dominating in the family: everyone is concealing information from everyone: brothers have secrets from each other and from their father, and so on.
Moliére contraposes force to force.
Young characters lose being unable to understand the deceitful mechanisms of the authority. Harpagon, who should have given the way to his children and provide for their happiness, prefers to marry a young girl which his son is also in love with. This is a fight between generations in which the father refuses to pull back and continues to stick to the position of strength, even at the cost of losing his nearest and dearest.” Shakar Pinkhas, playwright
