During her residency at Amherst College, Congdon presented this new adaptation of The Imaginary Invalid, commissioned by the American Conservatory Theatre. The story follows Monsieur Argan, a chronic hypochondriac with piles of medical bills. Scatological hilarity ensues when Argan tries to marry off his daughter to a doctor in order to relieve himself of his fatherly duty. This production of Moliere’s final play is sure to leave the audience rolling in the aisles.
The cast of The Imaginary Invalid includes Hayden Best ’21, Nishani Clarke ’23, Melanie Garcia ’22, Elyse Goncalves ’23, Kate Horton ’22, Laura Mahaniah ’20, Faith Monahan ’20, Carly Pearlson ’21, Karsten Rynearson ’22, Abigail Scharf ’21, and Teddy Wilkin ’20. The Imaginary Invalid is stage managed by Gaela Stewart ’20, with a run crew of Chi Igbokwe ’21, Ariana Phillips ’21, Myles Ringel ’21, and features original costume and set designs by Billy Murray and lighting designs by Brad Seymour.
