Synopsis

The Medicine Show is a short and swift play all about a fabulous (and hilarious) fake attuned to the chances of chance. This play is a new, contemporary comedy and a zany favorite wherever it is produced. It is ideal for easy touring and freely derived from Molière, although a truly American version for young and family audiences. The world's most famous, infamous, paramedical clown is involved in a scheming and plotting. He psyches out everybody in sight, falling back on his intuitive wits, and landing happily on his feet of clay. This version has a winning prescription that laughter is the best medicine!
