Originally presented in 1673, this hilarious play by Molière, the theater’s ultimate master of farce, gives us Argon, a miserable hypochondriac whose imaginary illnesses and very real wealth attract the quackiest of quacks. Outlandish trickery and silliness abound when hypochondria and egoism combine as Argon declares, “I want attention and I want a lot of it!” He ingeniously devises his own healthcare plan; He’ll marry his gorgeous daughter off to a geeky med student whose father is a doctor and uncle is a pharmacist and he’ll never have to pay for healthcare again. Audiences will roar with laughter at Argon and his eccentrics who would all be perfectly at home in our present pill popping culture and profit driven health care system. Molière’s unique blend of satire and slapstick will remind you that laughter is still the best medicine. This will definitely be a perfect prescription for fun!
