The Imaginary Invalid runs April 14th - 28th at the new Gremlin Theater in the Vandalia Tower building in St Paul which is situated right next door to Lake Monster brewing, so you can enjoy a beer before, during, or after the show (or all three!).

The Imaginary Invalid tells the story of Argan, a miserly hypochondriac who hatches a scheme to get free healthcare by marrying off one of his daughters (Angelique) to a young doctor (Thomas). Dependent on extravagant cures and desperately worried about his ability to continue to pay for his medical care, he will do anything. Angelique however, having already fallen in love with a florist (Cleante), has other plans for her life. Argans clever servant (Toinette) and gregarious brother (Beralde) come to her aid as they seek to unwind both his nefarious plot and his unhealthy obsession with quackery.

Though Moliere wrote it over 300 years ago, The Imaginary Invalid is a strikingly-relevant, passionate farce that shines a light on the wounds we inflict upon ourselves, the scars of life, and the lengths that some will go to achieve "affordable" healthcare in a seemingly-incurable system. This play-with-music features catchy Motown- and pop-inspired songs, commedia dell'arte roots, and sharp modern language.
