The Imaginary Invalid
The Imaginary Invalid is a theatre production by Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre), produced in 1962 and based on the play by Molière.
Gunnar Skar directed it and Gunnar Olram interpreted the role of the hypochondriac Argan.
The production was performed at the main stage.
The Imaginary Invalid became Molière's last play. It had its world premiere in 1673, and in its first production, the playwright acted the role of the hypochondriac Argan. He collapsed onstage February 17, during his fourth public performance of the role, and died in his home shortly later.
