by Herbert Siguenza
Based on Moliere’s classic comedy, The Imaginary Invalid.
December 1 – December 10
Siguenza reinvents this classic with satirical genius worthy of Moliere. Don Aragon is a Spanish landowner in Alta California on the eve of the U.S. annexation. He rules over his family with the will of a conquistador, but sadly, Don Aragon suffers great anxiety over the immanent U.S. invasion. When his unscrupulous doctor dubs the illness ‘Manifest Destinitis’, Don Aragon’s paranoid antics upset his grip on a rebellious household. With an outrageous satirical mixture of medicine and history, Siguenza’s prescription of laughter and lessons might do wonders for what ails us.
