A Flea in Her Ear

by George Feydeau, translated by David Ives

Directed by Jack Wright
Scenic Design by Del Unruh
Lighting Design by Nick Kostner
Costume Design by Madison Spencer

An oversexed gigolo, a suspicious wife, a jealous Spaniard, a drunken bellboy, and a witless nephew with a speech impediment all rendezvous at the shady Frisky Puss Hotel in Paris in one of the most popular and creative farces ever written. From drop-dead satire to deadpan farce, this comedic romp holds its own with nonstop amorous entanglements, unconsummated infidelities, mistaken identities, and breathless chases. Filled with revolving beds, rampaging husbands, mayhem, and misunderstandings, this new translation not only honors the original, but also brings the humor across to modern audiences.
