The Miser is one of the funniest plays in dramatic literature. It abounds with laughter as the son and daughter of the miser fall in love and are about to declare their intentions when the miser announces his own wedding plans. The children’s plans are disrupted when their father announced he plans to wed the girl with whom his son is in love, and his wealthy friend, to his daughter.
