Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price
Molière’s classic farce, Le Malade Imaginaire, in a fresh and performable translation.
The ‘imaginary invalid’ Argan is so obsessed with his health that he fails to notice what is happening around him in his own family. His scheming wife and loving daughter are finally revealed to him in their true light by Argan’s brother, who poses as a quack doctor and suggests he feigns death to test their loyalty.
This English version of Molière’s The Hypochondriac, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is translated and introduced by Martin Sorrell.
