“The Imaginary Invalid”
The famous hypochondriac in this classic farce not only complains of a million imaginary ills, but also of his astronimical medical bills. If he marries his daughter to a doctor, he reasons, he will have free medical care. He chooses someone without consulting the daughter who is already smitten by another. Exposed by the inventive maid who also demonstrates to the master that his second wife loves his money and not himself. Thus are truth and love triumphant and all troubles, real and imaginary, relieved by laughter.
