A brand new adaptation of Moliere’s The Imaginary Invalid that I co-wrote with Kristi Banker, Carol MacVey and our killer cast opens this Thursday night at the University of Iowa and runs this weekend and next! If you’re in the area, definitely check it out!
The Imaginary Invalid
adapted by Emily Dendinger, Kristi Banker, Carol MacVey and cast
directed by Carol MacVey
An aging hypochondriac with a miserly streak, Argan decides the key to solving his medical needs is to marry off his daughter to a doctor. Unfortunately for him, his gold-digging wife, his wise-cracking maid, and his daughter have other ideas. A fun, fresh take on Molière’s most often produced comedy; this new adaptation takes a close look at the medical industry, the source of many of Argan’s ills. With comic disguises, feigned deaths, an improvised opera, and Molière’s brilliant wit, The Imaginary Invalid could be just what the doctor ordered for a fun evening in the theatre.
