The latest comedy smash to hit the West End is a revival of Moliere’s classic The Miser, featuring a stellar cast of comic talent including TVO regulars Katy Wix and Ellie White – and YOU can win tickets to see it when it opens next month.

Actor, writer, presenter, comedian and two-time Olivier award-winner Griff Rhys Jones returns to the West End alongside BAFTA and British Comedy Award winning comedian Lee Mack (Not Going Out, The Mighty Boosh), who is making his West End debut. They are joined by Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey, Nathan Barley), Ryan Gage and Andi Osho.

Fanatical about protecting his wealth, the paranoid Harpagon (Rhys Jones) suspects all of trying to flinch his fortune and will go to any length to protect it. As true feelings and identities are revealed will Harpagon allow his children to follow their heart, or will his love of gold prove all-consuming?

This major revival is directed by Sean Foley, who previously directed revivals of The Dresser (written by Ronald Harwood and starring Reece Shearsmith and Ken Stott) and Jeeves and Wooster.

Foley is also responsible for the adaptation’s book, alongside award-winning playwright Phil Porter. You can find out more about the play at themisertheplay.com now.

As we previously reported back in December, the play is currently making waves at Bath Theatre Royal, before a stop-over at the Richmond Theatre between 21st and 25th February. Following this, it will transfer to the West End at The Garrick Theatre from 1st March for a limited season that must end on 3rd June – and this is where our competition comes in.

The good folk behind the production have very kindly offered us the chance to let one lucky reader see the show for free, with a pair of tickets for any Mon-Thur performance of the show during the opening weeks between 1st March and 13th April.
