Eccentric and hillarious, Georges Feydeau's much loved comedy mixes madness, mayhem, fun and frivolity. When the beautiful wife of Victor Chandebise suspects of having an affair, she enlists the help of her dearest friend to entrap him. Their plan to entice him to a rendezvous at the Hotel Coq D'or spectacularly misfires and chaos ensues. Set in the decadent surroundings of Belle Epoque Paris, Feydeau's quintessential farce promises to be an exhilerating even of mistaken identities and comic disaster.
"Georges Feydeau (1862-1921) is best known for his enduring farces, such as 'A Flea in her Ear', yet he wrote over 20 monologues for actors to perform at charity concerts and in fashionable drawing rooms. John Mortimer was a playwright, novelist and, prior to that, a practising barrister. During the war he worked for the Crown Film Unit and published a number of novels before turning to the theatre. His plays include A Voyage Round My Father (which he later adapted for Thames Television), Naked Justice, Hock and Soda Water and The Dock Brief. He wrote many fi lm scripts and radio and television plays including six plays on the life of Shakespeare for ATV and the adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's novel Brideshead Revisited for Granada. "
