The Niggard Rich Wikipedia
The story, located in Brazil's northeast, is about a rich and powerful colonel and his two employees. Day after day, the colonel shows his avarice to the citizens of his small village, negating alms and food to the poor people who visits his house in desperation. Then, the niggard rich receives an unexpected visit: the Chief of Hell and his dogs appear to arrest him because of his sins.
The play is considered one of Suassuna's best creations, at the side of O Auto da Compadecida and O Santo e a Porca.
