The Hypochondriac at Bingley Arts Centre
Play, Mon 3 - Sat 8 Jul 2017
Also at this Venue
This is a comedy adapted from the Moliere Script and is in the same style as the very successful Man with Two Guvnors.
Argan is the hopeless, lying hypochondriac who spends countless amounts of money trying to prove he has various ailments, including much reference to his daily enema.
He is a desperately trying to force his daughter Angelique to marry a doctor in order to reduce his medical bills. Angelique is in love with Cliente, one of Argan’s apprentices.
If she won’t marry the doctor’s son she will be sent to a convent and inherit nothing.
Beline is Argan’s current scheming wife who wants to get her hands on his fortune whilst having an affair with her solicitor friend Deuxfois.
Add to this his loyal maid Toinette who wears many hats and keeps the thread of the story, along with Doctor Diafoirerhoea and his would be suitor son Thomas.
His brother Beline arrives on the scene to help Argan see some sense. Quick wit, asides and slick dialogue await the audience.
