Placeholder Image
The Armstrong Atlantic State University Department of Art, Music & Theatre student theatre troupe, the Masquers, presents a satire on the medical profession of the late 1600s in France.
"The Imaginary Invalid" by Jean-Baptiste Moliére, will be presented Feb. 28-29 and March 1-2 (7:30 p.m., 3 p.m. only on March 2) in the Masquers' new temporary home: Masquers Chinese Theatre at Armstrong Center.
The play was the playwright and actor last before he died of a chronic pulmonary infection after dismissing his friends and family's advice to seek medical help. He wrote the comedy to note the ridiculous nature of the medical profession in the late 1600s in France.
The play focuses on the witty Argan, a hypochondriac who swindles all his family's money into the medical business and urges his daughter to marry into the profession to ensure a doctor will always be at his side.
Armstrong Center is at 13040 Abercorn St. in Savannah.
You can buy advance tickets to "The Imaginary Invalid" at the AASU AMT Box Office in the AASU Fine Arts Building, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., weekdays. Call (912) 927-5381.
