Event on 2017-04-24 19:30:00
Two young lovers are hysterically in love. The girls father opposes their marriage so the lovers elope but fail to consummate their wedding. “Sganarelle,” a roadside potion peddler, is coaxed into assuming the guise of a prominent physician. He prescribes cannabis as his preferred and only medicine. While curing some ailments of the local gentry, he is coaxed into attempting to cure a young girl’s horrific ailment that is caused by the forbidden love between her and her first love. Accidental Doctor Sganarelle uses his prowess as master of cannabis potions and vapors to conduct a comedy of errors, in a farcical homage to Moliere and Machiavelli. All of the players’ altered personalities, maniacal misunderstandings, salacious events, and the pain of young love, ends with the humiliating defeat of the villainous representative of Big Pharmaceuticals.
