Wonderland Productions’ debut at the Dublin Gay Theatre Festival is pure entertainment, a famous French farce, with all the decadence of the pre-revolutionary love doctors themselves. Expect big white wigs, coquettish sighs, and cross dressing lovers, as Molière’s heroine Lucinde falls mortally ill with an undiagnosed disease – Love. Song, dance and spectacle as Molière’s fun and fast farce, L’Amour Médecin, or The Love Doctor is presented in a modern Commedia dell’ Arte style.
A camp, comedic farce, with lots of laughs along the way.
