A hypochondriac, victimized by pompous physicians, tests the loyalty of a loving daughter and discovers the contempt of his scheming and greedy second wife. This classic comedy from one of the most brilliant satirists in the history of literature deflates the pretensions of society and reveals the universal frailties of humanity.

New Haven Advocate

Translator Magruder is [known] for his brash injections of present-day lingo into seldom-seen French comedies that had been deemed stuffy' before he got his ink-stained hand on 'em. Anything goes, anything for a laugh, any port in a storm, even if (especially if) that port happens to be an outhouse. It's a rude, bright, wild show.
