The Imaginary Invalid

By Moliere

Directed by Patricia Boyette

Cough! Wheeze! Gasp! Argan, a miserly hypochondriac, wants his daughter, Angelique, to marry a doctor—for the free medical care. This new translation of Moliere’s farcical comedy pokes fun at the medical profession, family corruption, and absurdities in familial du1937ty. Produced in the “Steampunk” aesthetic, a fantastical spin Victorian decadence and turn-of-the-century industrialization, this costume drama will delight through its combination of satiric commentary, physical farce, and stunning visuals.

Produced by UW-Madison at the Mitchell Theatre, 821 University Ave, UW Vilas Hall, Madison
