YC Fall Theatre Opens October 8th
Written and first performed while Molière was dying, The Imaginary Invalid targets the medical quacks of 17th-century France. The eccentric and wealthy hypochondriac Monsieur Argan decides to marry his strong-willed daughter Angelica off to a doctor, so that he’ll always have a physician around. But Angelica loves another man, and her attempts to persuade her father to let her marry him lead to outrageous tricks and disguises. Molière’s keen wit and hilarious characters take center stage in this knockabout farce.
The production will run October 8-11 in Gurganus Hall (10th & Kiplinger), with showings on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m.
Tickets are $6 adults/$4 seniors & students. Reservations can be made by calling the York College Box Office at 402-363-5641 or by email.
