A comedy by Moliere produced by Dù Theatre.
Some are sick in the head, some are dying to be sick!
Admit it. We all want to live for ever. But some of us seem to think we are dying forever!
A rich man, Argan is cursed with an obsession that he is eternally unwell, the perfect victim for quack remedies and doctors. Desperate to have what every sick man wants; a doctor in the family, he tries to marry off his daughter to a family of doctors. Meanwhile, desperate to get her hands on his money, his second wife brings in the lawyers to try and get her hands on his money before he is even dead and buried.
A carnival of characters take to the stage to persuade, cajole and fight for the man’s wealth as he lies in his chair in perfect health but convinced of his imminent death.
Who or what will be the death of him? Will his wife get the loot or will the doctors before her? And what about his poor impulsive daughter, she who is in love with a singer artist she met just three weeks before? Moliere’s explosively funny comedy, translated by George Cassola, continues to be a sure-fire hit with plenty of laughs, music and even a bit of dance!
