Love Doctor!: Episode One is based predominantly on The Physician In Spite of Himself with a few bits of The Flying Doctor and Don Juan, or: The Feast With The Statue, all written by Moliere and starring the common (male) character, Sganarelle. "Moliere's Sganarelle plays are packed from end-to-end with riotously funny gags. What I failed to appreciate as a teenage boy, however, is that the majority of the humor revolves around the male characters' incessant attempts to dominate, objectify, and generally abuse the females. Rather than attempting to whitewash the implicit misogyny of these plays, my adaptation strives to illuminate the parallels between how women were treated in Moliere's France and how they are sometimes treated today. We also hope to emphasize the scrappy cunning of Moliere's women, who exploit every advantage possible to survive and (maybe) thrive in this hostile Man's world." shares Director Jon Elston, who is also the mastermind behind this entertaining and painfully hilarious adaptation of some of Moliere's masterpieces.

A highly anticipated production at NCCC, Love Doctor!: Episode One's opening week filled the college's intimate Black Box Theatre and successfully sent their audiences home in tears of hard-laughter and beaming smiles. Only three performances remain--you do not want to miss this gem!

Love Doctor!: Episode One will run through October 25th with performances on Friday and Saturday at 7pm, and Sunday at 2pm.
Admission is $10 General; $5 Seniors and Alumni. Seating is very limited and it is strongly recommended to purchase and reserve your tickets in advance.
*This show is intended for mature audiences.
