“Trés crass, trés funny… [a] delirious spree of silliness.” —The Seattle Times
All the world’s a fart joke in Constance Congdon’s hilarious new take on Moliere’s skewering of a health care crisis from an entirely different century. To quell his growing pile of medical bills, Monsieur Argan, a chronic hypochondriac, will go to any length to marry his daughter off to a doctor. Of course, his daughter has other ideas. A narcotic cocktail of romantic triangles, double entendres and mistaken identities ensues, promising to leave you gasping, giggling and possibly… in stitches.
