Description:

THE STORY: In Moliegrave;re's outrageous satire of medicine and its practitioners, the wealthy Argan, to put it mildly, enjoys poor health. Laxatives, suppositories, bloodlettings, and second and third opinions from the leading quacks are the order of his day-and hell on his wily, back-talking servant Toinette. His daughter Angeacute;lique is in love with the impoverished Cleacute;ante, but Argan wants to marry her to Thomas Diafoirus, a medical dunce who can assure his father-in-law a lifetime of health care. Cleacute;ante disguises himself as a music teacher to gain access to his love, but Beacute;line, Argan's mercenary second wife, threatens to expose them. A disguised Toinette, sage advice from his brother Beacute;ralde, and a faked death scene finally teach Argan where to place his trust. The play ends with Argan's ceremonious, pigLatin induction into the medical profession.
