Molière's "conceited patient" Argan is a hypochondriac: he consults doctors, who patiently and happily prescribe unnecessary treatments for overpriced bills. A doctor in the house would be fine, Argan thinks and would therefore like to marry his daughter with one. However, she is in love with Cléante - and the comedy takes its course: the family tries to free Argan from the delusion of hypochondria, while Argan, in turn, recognizes the love of his daughter and the greed of his wife. In the end, Argan decides to become a doctor himself, and the daughter is allowed to marry whom she wants, the main thing he becomes a doctor.

A indebted small town experiences its upswing as a health resort thanks to a healing water source. But diseases among the bathers make the bath doctor Tomas Stockmann suspicious - an analysis of the water results in a harmful contamination. In the escalating conflicts of interest, Tomas Stockmann will soon be alone. He must realize that his fellow citizens are more interested in preserving the status quo than in uncomfortable truths.
Commissioned by the Burgtheater, the award-winning Austrian dramatist Ferdinand Schmalz has over-written, rewrote and rewritten the play of dying the rich man for the 21st century. He takes the text almost its liturgical character, sharpens the dramaturgy of the original, sharpens the conflicts, reluctantly screwing up language and meter, breaking old-clichés and renewing the iconography..
A democracy becomes a dictatorship. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether to join in or swim against the tide. The actor Hendrik Höfgen is also in this dilemma but does not want to admit it. "Imprisoned in his ambition," he dreams only of his future fame, which has just begun to blossom. His talent is undisputed and enthusiastic even the new rulers, who like to surround themselves with artists. But many recognize the signs of the times and go abroad, into exile. Also Hendrik stands for a moment before this decision: Go or stay. But living as a poor refugee abroad?
