The Imaginary Invalid

WORLD PREMIERE
May 27 – June 25, 2017
(Opening Night: June 1)

Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

By Molière
Adapted by Fiasco Theater

The acclaimed artists of Fiasco Theater are back! Fiasco delighted Globe audiences with their reinvented Into the Woods, and now they take on one of the greatest comedy writers of all time: Molière. In the outrageously funny masterpiece The Imaginary Invalid, the hypochondriac Argan wants his daughter to marry a doctor so he can save on his medical bills. But she’s in love with someone else. Soon the whole household joins in her madcap scheme to save true love and give Argan’s doctors a dose of their own medicine. This Globe-commissioned world premiere adaptation will have you in stitches. The New York Times called Fiasco “a force to reckon with in American theater.”
