Synopsis

The adventures of Sganarelle, a wood chopper who becomes a doctor in spite of himself when his wife, Martina, fantasticates the story that he is really a gifted physician who will not admit to his profession unless beaten with staves. Sganarelle is engaged by Geronte, a wealthy landowner, to cure his daugther, Lucinda, or her inabilty to speak. Lucinda has faigned dumbness only in order to avoid marrying a fop named Horace whom her father favors when her heart really belongs to an impetuous lad named Leander.
