What do you get when you cross a man with hypochondria, a young doctor, and a nun? A hilarious play by Moliere.

After reviewing the play, they complete an activity about subtext and emotion using a modified script.

- Discuss Moliere's opinion of doctors and whether scholars agree or disagree with his point of view
- Content aligns with Sunshine State standards for theatre and language arts
- Provides background information and other context to make the content of the script more understandable
- Includes interactive components to get learners out of their seats
- Main activity lacks an option for those who may not be comfortable standing in front of the class
