Love & luck to the superb CHRIS HANNON opening this weekend in THE HYPOCHONDRIAC at Sheffield Crucible 30 Sep – 21 Oct.

“Perhaps you could take my pulse? Simply to confirm my worst fears. How long do I have? Days, months or years?”

Self-obsessed and fixated on his health, wealthy Argan spends his time and money on frequent visits to the family physician.

With medical bills piling up, Argan believes he has found the perfect solution to his problem. But with an exasperated household growing tired of his antics, Argan’s time may be better spent addressing what is real, rather than worrying about what is imagined.

A witty satire punctuated with music and dance, this adaptation of Molière’s masterpiece proves that laughter really is the best form of medicine.
