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, kept 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 was directed by Donald N.C. Jones and performed by Cedarville University students.
