THE CELL PRESENTS THE HYPOCHONDRIAC A MODERN RE-TELLING OF MOLIERE'S THE IMAGINARY INVALID

Genre: Comedy
Directed by Matthew AJ Gregory

 The Hypochondriac, a contemporary re-imagining of Moliere's last play, The Imaginary Invalid. Satirizing today’s pill-popping culture and broken, drug-driven health care system.

The Hypochondriac takes place in a swank Manhattan apartment awash with art, and filled with pill bottles, bedpans and medical paraphernalia. 
The story revolves around Mr. Argan, a wealthy and eccentric hypochondriac, who is plagued by a gold-digging wife, an insolent maid, a rebellious young daughter and an infestation of drug-peddling, incompetent doctors. Although Argan is actually in fine health, he is so doped up that the side effects alone have him convinced that he is dying. Through a series of hilarious tricks and outrageous disguises, Argan’s fast-talking maid and exasperated brother work furiously to cure him of his true malady.
