Event Series Event Series: The Hypochondriac

The Hypochondriac

22 February 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Written By: Molière
Directed by Angela Short

This classic starts with Argan, The Hypochondriac, planning to marry his eldest daughter (Angelique) off to the nephew of his physician in order to have medical assistance on tap gratis. However, his daughter has already fallen in love with someone else. It becomes obvious that his (second) wife is more interested in his money than himself. Toinette, the help, has great fun manipulating the situation and eventually resolving it.

Production description/Director’s vision:
Moliere’s writing is timeless and his characters are as relevant today as they were in 1673. This production will be quirky, fun and full of energy with many references to the style and essence of Commedia Dell’arte and pantomime.

The auditions will be held at The Stirling Community Theatre, Avenue Rd Stirling. They will be in workshop form. Scenes will be provided for you to familiarise yourself prior to the date.

10th September – 25th September
