From one of the greatest comic writers in French history, Moliére’s classic farce pokes fun at Argan – a man so greedily obsessed by his own imaginary ailments, he can no longer control his chaotic household or the mercenary medics he employs. With doctors determined to grow fat from the profits of his condition, Argan’s closest relatives battle to show him the truth of his situation. Using elaborate trickery, they strive to cure the real disease from which he suffers, managing to pile confusion upon hilarious confusion.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
