Using a modern and hilarious translation, The Newton Theatre Company performs Moliere's brilliant satire of the medical profession. Staged in the tradition of a 17th century comedy, this family-friendly production combines humor with song and dance as the ultimate hypochondriac, Argan, plots to marry his daughter off to a young doctor, ensuring a lifetime of medical care. Not to fear - saucy maid, Toinette, is on to him, and zany antics ensue as the characters work in opposition to Argan's desires.
Local band, The Tripsters, will entertain during intermissions!
