There is great excitement in the Argan house. The head of the family actually wants to give his daughter Angélique to the arrogant son of his doctor Diafoirus as a wife, which meets with fierce resistance from everyone. There is only one reason for this marriage: Monsieur Argan, who is tormented by all kinds of non-existent diseases, wants to have a doctor in the family. But there is Toinette, the clever housemaid, who wants to rid her master of his "evil".
Molière tackles the medical profession in this successful comedy: a ruthless unmasking of an egomaniacal medical profession, which still has a strange-seeming topicality today.
The Theater Comédie Saas-Fee came into being in December 2019, at that time still under the name Kulturhaus Rex. It all began when the director was drawn to Carl Zuckmayer's last home and staged DER FRÖHLICHE WEINBERG by Zuckmayer on the open-air stage in Saas-Grund in summer 2019. Falling in love with Saas-Fee, he stayed and founded the theatre in the former premises of the Cinéma Rex. A great ensemble of local and foreign actors from all over Switzerland and also from Germany emerged.
The Comédie Saas-Fee offers a wide range of classics such as JEDERMANN by Hugo von Hofmannsthal or WAS IHR WOLLT by Shakespeare (Summer Theatre Saas-Fee on the village square in 2020 and 2021) or its own plays such as DER BURGER AM ENDE DER BERGBAHN and ROAD TO WOODSTOCK. Since September 2021, the ensemble has been performing at various venues in and around Saas-Fee.
