Is There a Doctor in the House? (Play)

By: Tim Kelly

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 14F, 9M, optional extras
Time: 90 minutes, 2 acts

The very best moments of the greatest farces of Molière are now all part of one easily staged modern version. Each quack physician is devoted to the Grease Gulch Hippopatomus Oath - "If you can’t convnice ’em, confuse ’em." And this they do with rapid-fire jokes sight gags and slapstick comedy! A new kind of classic cowboy-country comedy with a wide variety of zany Western characters. Lucy Canary, the mayor’s daughter, loves Lester Goodbe, a likeable cowboy. But Lucy’s father insists that she marry Otis Lackginger, a rich, old coot with one foot in the grave. Lucy pretends to lose her voice to stall the marriage and everyone goes on a search to find a doctor to cure her. And what a passel of phony medics they find! The climax is the funniest operation scene ever witnessed - the doctors take it all out and put it back! Easy to rehearse and stage with one simple set. Many small roles - all choice. Western costumes. Two acts that build to a roaring finish on stage and off!
