Cedarville, Ohio-How do you deal with an overbearing, hypochondriac father that wants to marry his daughter to an idiotic doctor? By laughing. Moliere’s classic comical play, “The Imaginary Invalid,” produced by Cedarville University’s theatre program, will keep audiences smiling.

“The Imaginary Invalid,” written in 17th century France, was playwright Moliere’s final satirical play. The performance follows disease-obsessed Argan on his journey to wed his daughter, Angélique, to a medical student. Each act is rich with sarcasm as Argan tries to become healthy as well as find the perfect husband for Angélique.

The show is directed by Donald N.C. Jones and performed by Cedarville University students. Performances will be held in The DeVries Theatre of the University’s Stevens Student Center. Shows begin at 8 p.m. nightly on Oct. 4-6 and 11-13 with 2 p.m. matinees on Oct.6 and 13.

Tickets cost $12 for adults and $7 for students. Call 1-866-612-0014 for more information.
