Knock ou le triomphe de la médécine (Jules Romains) 2018


Sacré Théâtre’s take on J.Romains' comic satire about the invasion of a sleepy French village by modern medicine, with the arrival of a certain Dr Knock. Dr. Knock turns health into big business with the help of a relativistic philosophy that provides intellectual justification for sending almost everyone to bed.
