Director Roger DeLaurier and adapter/translator Patricia Troxel have chosen to set Moliere's classic in mid 1700s Philadelphia. Main character Argan Silas is the model of perfect health, except for the fact that he thinks he's chronically ill. What with rising medical costs, it only makes sense he should see his daughter well married, preferably to a doctor, in order to keep his excessive treatment expenses to a minimum. Alas, the daughter has fallen for someone else and the step mother wants her in a convent. Leave it to the crafty maid to devise a cure for the entire household's woes.
Featuring Equity Guest Artist William Youmans and Resident Artist Vanessa Ballam.
