Playing doctor takes on a whole new meaning in Moliere's scathing look at the medical profession. Husband and wife Sganarelle and Martine have taken marital squabbles to a whole new level. One fight goes too far when she convinces the town he's the best doctor around and can cure any ailment. The tables quickly turn, however, and soon the town is out for blood. Filled with outrageous situations and brilliant dialogue, Molière transforms earthbound comedy into art. Hugely physical and playful,A Doctor in Spite of Himself combines wicked satire with the virtuosic playfulness of Commedia Dell Arte.
