Join us on Tuesday, July 11 for the Restoration Comedy: A Flea in Her Ear in the Up-the-Hill Theatre. Written by Georges Feydeau. Directed by David Frank.
The Funniest French Confection Ever to Frost a Stage
Featuring: Tracy Michelle Arnold, Kelsey Brennan, Nate Burger, David Daniel, Colleen Madden, Jonathan Smoots & Marcus Truschinski
The lovely Raymonde Chandebise wonders why her husband has stopped visiting her bedroom, and assumes he must be having an affair. So she asks her friend Lucienne to write him a love letter meant to lure him to a rendezvous where she can catch him in the act of being unfaithful.
But when Raymonde’s (very faithful) husband Victor Emmanuel receives the letter, he assumes it’s for his bachelor friend Tournel and gives it to him instead, setting in motion a hilarious series of events that bounces from the Chandebise home to a hotel of ill repute, where anything (and apparently everyone) goes.
