Description Molière?s classic comedy was written as a savage attack on the fools and hypocrites who practised medicine in the 1670s.

Argan is a hypochondriac who, to reduce his medical expenses, decides to marry his daughter Angelica to a physician?s son. Unfortunately, Angelica is already in love with Cléante. Argan?s brother Béralde and Toinette, an inventive maid, save the situation for the lovers and expose Mme Argan?s schemes to bleed her husband of his fortune.

This new version of the play is "classical theatre" that is rowdy, hilarious and thoroughly entertaining.

The perfect prescription
