Eight talented actors join together to bring out the bile and very dark side of Molière’s last work. Still very relevant to this day, the play is an artfully led crusade against doctors’ incompetence and the hypochondriac society in which we live. Michel Didym and André Marcon share the role of Argan, skilfully making us like the old protagonist despite his anxious and unpleasant behaviour. Both monstrous and touching, all these characters rope us into their fascinating universe of merry cynicism. Innovative and irreverent, a classic for all ages!

A musical, burlesque classic – a true remedy for the soul!

The director Michel Didym takes mischievous delight in joining Molière in his comical lampooning of medicine and doctors

« Even if the performance remains a tad classic, this is a jauntily played show of contrasts, punctuated with hair-raising moments of madness: an Egyptian dance worthy of Asterix and Cleopatra, a climactic ballet for the coronation of Argan, the patient elevated to the rank of doctor. »
