Pot Of Gold
No shows scheduled for now
The figure of the miser has been a stock character of comedy for centuries. Plautus does not spare his protagonist various embarrassments caused by the vice, but he is relatively gentle in his satire. Baans is eventually shown as a good-hearted man who has only been temporarily affected by the greed for gold. The play also ridicules the old man Kumar for his dream of marrying the nubile and far younger Bholi.The play also includes Plautus frequent theme of clever servants outwitting their supposed superiors. Not only does Bulbul's servant manage to filch Baans' beloved gold, but Baans housemaid Imarti is also shown as intelligent and kind in her attitude toward the unfortunately pregnant Bholi.
