Georges Feydeau's
A FLEA IN HER EAR



Raymonde Chandebise suspects her husband is being unfaithful. She sets a trap for him by inviting him anonymously to a rendezvous at the Minet-Galant hotel. Mr. Chandebise responds to the invitation by sending his faithful friend Tournel, unaware that the hotel porter, Poche, is his look-alike. The hotel subsequently becomes the scene of a gigantic farce where mistaken identities, lies and deception run out of control without anyone able to make it all stop...

With its impressive construction and incredible inventiveness, A Flea in Her Ear marked Feydeau's triumphant return to vaudeville in 1907. Fickle husbands feature alongside jealous wives. Doors slam. A classic comedy of morals!
