Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

In this cheeky satire, an old hypochondriac believes in nothing and no one—except the dubious diagnoses his quack doctors keep delivering. A.C.T.‘s new production of The Imaginary Invalid offers a hysterical exposé of society’s childlike devotion to staying “well”—and a prescription for a rollicking good time.
By Molière (The Misanthrope, The School for Wives, Tartuffe, The Miser, The Bourgeois Gentleman)
Adapted by Constance Congdon
Directed by Ron Lagomarsino
