The Doctor in spite of himself is here in the UK, one of the least produced of Moliere’s plays, when comparing to The Misanthrope, Tartuffe or The Hypocondriac. Sganarelle makes life a living hell for his wife. He spends all their money in books and drinks to the point of beating her up. To avenge herself, she makes believe her husband is a doctor but who would only work after being beaten up. And against all odds, this doctor, in spite of himself, performs miracles.
