The Hypochondriac

by Richard Bean, after Moliere

UK Tour (October – December 2014)

 

Richard Bean, the adaptor of One Man, Two Guvnors, turns Moliere’s medicinal masterpiece into a riotous farce in this brand new production starring Tony Robinson, Imogen Stubbs and Tracie Bennett.

 

The penny pinching Argan is healthy, wealthy and completely obsessed by a list of imaginary ailments he believes himself to be suffering from. Confusion is piled upon hilarious confusion as a gang of eccentric quacks and Argan’s treacherous wife endeavour to fleece him of his fortune, whilst his lovesick daughter, her dashing
lover and an astute maid attempt to set him straight.
