The Doctor in spite of himself

Organised by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi

Le Médecin malgré lui or ‘The Doctor in Spite of Himself’ is a farce by Molière first presented in 1666. The play is one of several plays by Molière to center on Sganarelle, a poor woodcutter who makes life a living hell for his wife and family by spending what little he earns on food and drink. His wife, Martine, then decides to take revenge.

                                                                 

She hears two passing servants of a rich man mention their frustration at being unable to find a doctor who can cure their master's daughter's mysterious illness. She convinces the two that her husband is an eccentric but brilliant doctor, whom they must beat into admitting his identity.

 

A not to miss great Molière with period costumes on stage and brilliant direction.
