SYNOPSIS

Argan, a cantankerous hypochondriac obsessed by his ailments, is surrounded by a court of corrupt and ignorant doctors who take advantage of him. A tyrannical father, he is set on marrying his daughter Angélique to the nephew of Monsieur Purgon, his faithful personal physician. However, she is in love with the young Cléante and resists his wishes, even if it means being sent to a convent. The odious stepmother Béline further fuels the conflict. It takes the tenacity and wiles of the maid Toinette for the masks to fall.

PRESENTATION

Written when Molière was in a weakened state, his last play is nonetheless one of his most brilliant comedies - as if he had gathered all the resources of his genius to reach the summit of his art. A timeless classic!
