“The young troupe Les Pitres Rouges, led by the talented Brice Borg(….) seizes this satire of doctors and gullible ones with a burlesque and joyful humor.

This “Doctor In Spite of Himself” is spirited, modern, and wild. An exhilarating show, ideal to introduce Molière to children starting at 9 years old.” Le Pariscope, September 2014 (French arts and living magazine)
