The celebrated writer of French classic comedy Moliere (Jean-Baptiste Poquelin) is considered one of the most brilliant satirists in the history of literature. In The Imaginary Invalid, a hypochondriac, victimized by two pompous doctors, tests his daughter's loyalty and discovers the greed and contempt of his scheming wife. Moliere's keen observations and sharp wit focus a bright light on the hypocrisies and frailties of humanity.

Tickets are necessary for Friday and Saturday performances.
