About A Doctor in Spite of Himself


“Playing doctor” takes on a whole new meaning as a marital squabble escalates into comic pandemonium. The spirited Martine exacts revenge on her scoundrel of a husband, Sganarelle, by convincing the town that he’s the best doctor around and that he can cure any ailment. But the trickster turns the tables on his wife—and everyone else—with his own definition of “in sickness and in health.”

Bursting with slapstick physical comedy, naughty innuendo, and irreverent hijinks, A Doctor in Spite of Himself marks the return to Yale Rep of Christopher Bayes and Steven Epp, whose The Servant of Two Masters had audiences and critics alike in stitches—including The New York Times, which rejoiced, “Now that’s theatre!”
