Theatre in the Round to Open 62nd Season with THE IMAGINARY INVALID, 9/6-29
Theatre in the Round Players will open its 62nd season with Moliere's The Imaginary Invalid, September 6 through 29, 2013.
Monsieur Argan is a miserable, miserly hypochondriac who complains of a million ills, and groans even more when he gets the bills from the quacks who are happy to treat him. So he devises a scheme to get his own free health care by marrying his daughter off to a medical student -- but she's in love with her music teacher.
This broad farce of slapstick, bawdy humor, and nasty characters is also a biting satire of greed by one of the greatest comic writers in history.
