Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum


unnamed (2)

Opening July 9 at Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum, Mary Jo DuPrey (last season’s August: Osage County) directs Constance Congdon’s fresh and hilarious adaptation of The Imaginary Invalid, Molière’s skewering of the health care profession from an entirely different century. Plagued by a growing pile of medical bills, Madame Argan (Ellen Geer), a chronic hypochondriac, will go to any length to marry her daughter off to a doctor. Of course, her daughter has other ideas. This potent elixir of romantic triangles, double entendres and mistaken identities proves, in the end, that laughter really is the best medicine. Also starring Alan Blumenfeld as Dr. Purgeon.
