A FLEA IN HER EAR
a new version of Georges Feydeau’s farce by David Ives
March 3-18, 2017
Winner of a 2006 Jefferson Award for best adaptation.
In a new adaptation by contemporary playwright David Ives, Georges Feydeau’s giddy farce concerns an insurance executive named Victor Chandebise, whose wife, Raymonde, suspects him of having an affair. When she lays a trap for him at the disreputable Frisky Puss Hotel, with help from her friend Lucienne, who's married to a jealous Spaniard, bourgeois respectability explodes into a brouhaha involving a set of garters, a revolving bed, a missing medical prosthesis, two women in French-maid outfits and other screwball ingredients.
“…[a] crisp, delightfully ridiculous translation…” — Time Out Chicago
“…a hilarious evening of classic comedy.” — Chicago Critic
