(One Man Two Governors)

 

Moliere's classic farce pokes fun at Argan, a man so obsessed by his own imaginary ailments that he can no longer control his haphazard household or the mercenary medics

he employs.

With doctors determined to grow fat from profits of his condition, Argan's closest relatives battle to show him the truth of his situation. Using elaborate trickery, they strive to sure the real disease from which he suffers, managing to pile confusion upon

hilarious confusion.
