Moliere's The Hypochondriac

Darlinghurst Theatre Company

Moliere's Moliere's

Hilary Bell's version of Molière's The Hypochondriac is a new Australian work produced by Darlinghurst Theatre Company.

THE HYPOCHONDRIAC
A NEW VERSION BY HILARY BELL.

An irreverent and delicious farce where the old world meets the new.

Argan is a needy and controlling patriarch of a household of women, and his hypochondria is the perfect means to keep them at his beck and call. But when his self-obsession extends to selling off his daughter in return for on-tap medical attention, his housekeeper Toinette decides it’s time to fight back.

In this world premiere, Hilary Bell adapts Molière’s classic satire for contemporary Australian audiences.

The Hypochondriac critiques a society of overdiagnosis and over-prescription that has us clamouring for short-cut fixes and pharmaceuticals.

The Hypochondriac is an hilarious farce for our times where all’s well that ends well and a little bit of sense triumphs over the unreasonable.
