Theater at North Shore Community College
Laughter is the best medicine! Enjoy a good dose of it as The Performing Arts Council of North Shore Community College (NSCC) presents Moliére's The Imaginary Invalid, translated and adapted by James Magruder and The Love Doctor, translated and adapted by Nagle Jackson. These 17th century classical farces have been whimsically reimagined by director Matthew Woods. Costumes designed by IRNE-nominated Cotton Talbot-Minkin.
Performances will be held at the Neal Rantoul Vault Theatre at Lynn Arts, 25 Exchange St., Lynn on May 3 & 4 at 7p.m. with a matinee showing on May 5 at 3p.m. General admission is $7, $5 for students and seniors (with ID).
Young love is forced to contend with old-fashioned quackery in The Imaginary Invalid. With the spirit of carnival swirling around him, Argan, a terminal hypochondriac, holes himself up in his sick chamber where he is dominated by doctors and a host of imagined illnesses. He's also controlled by his second wife, Béline, a gold-digging schemer. But when Argan's obsession with the medical establishment culminates in a plot to marry his daughter Angélique to a quack, passions flare!
