From the VT Suitcase Co:
If you enjoyed our Midsummer Night's Dream, then come delight in our adapted Moliere, The Doctor and the Dowry. The miserly merchant Signor Buccio is desperate to marry off his daughter Alessandra to the well-matched Visconte de Luca, but her grave (and completely fabricated) illness has gotten in the way. Alessandra dreams of running away with the handsome servant boy, Fabrizio, but Fabrizio's swindling sister Colombina plans to rob the old man and flee to Sicily once and for all. Will Dr. Tartaglia's herbal concoctions actually kill the perfectly healthy Alessandra? Will Pedrolino manage to tunnel into Buccio Manor in time?
