Winchell must woo his wife back so he won’t have to pay her out in divorce court, and cure his recently engaged daughter Emily of the matrimonial urge, so he won’t have to pay for a wedding – ever!  Set in modern day Winnipeg, Gray’s version of Molière’s classic satire is part sex farce and part screwball comedy. 

Nicholas Rice as Winchell – The Miser
Marina Stephenson Kerr as Mia – The wife
Shannon Guile as Emily – The daughter
Andrew Cecon as Martin – The love interest
Ryan James Miller as Richard – The butler

Wayne Koestenbaum will present in a multi-modal format in between lecture, reading, and performance. 
Koestenbaum has written an examination of "the erotics of male literary collaboration" (Double Talk); a study of opera and homosexuality (The Queen's Throat); the volume on Andy Warhol for the Penguin Lives series (Andy Warhol); an investigation into Jackie O's iconic status in American culture (Jackie Under My Skin); a collection of essays on "sex, stars and aesthetics" (Cleavage); a delirious, sui-generis inventory of Harpo Marx gags (The Anatomy of Harpo Marx); and a kaleidoscopic compilation of reflections on humiliation (Humiliation).  He has also authored several books of highly regarded poetry.
