A FLEA IN HER EAR
by Georges Feydeau, an new translation by David Ives
Perhaps the greatest farce ever written.  Sexual innuendo, colourful characters, slamming doors and Paris's most notorious hotel, The Frisky Puss.  There the bourgeoisie let their peccadilloes out to play, propriety takes a vacation, and ribaldry rules the roost.  Result: Comic chaos!
