Title: The Hypochondriac
Author: Hilary Bell
Price: $25.95

The Hypochondriac by Hilary Bell transforms Moliere’s comedy for Australian audiences. Blending a nostalgic use of comic genres with vaudeville, slapstick, and a touch of commedia del’arte, this adaptation is a contemporary take on a classic farce.

Argan is a needy and controlling patriarch of a household of women, and his hypochondria is the perfect means to keep them at his beck and call. But when his self-obsession extends to selling off his daughter in return for on-tap medical attention, his housekeeper Toinette decides it’s time to fight back.
