Event Description
The Imaginary Invalid (Andrew Carnegie FL & MH)

This event is for the showings at Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. To purchase tickets for other show locations, please see the Pittsburgh Savoyards' website.


From Molière, the most performed French playwright of all time, comes the story of Argan, a hypochondriac, who makes everyone in his life miserable with his melodramatic suffering from imagined ills and endless, unnecessary curative treatments. His doctors and apothecary are bleeding him dry–literally and figuratively. His duplicitous second wife schemes to inherit his whole estate. His daughter, Angélique, is in love with Cléante, but Argan engages her to an oafish medical student, so as to secure free medical care for himself. Argan’s foolish and unshakable devotion to medicine is out of control, and it is up to Toinette, the family’s faithful servant, to set the household to rights again.
