This French bedroom farce, written by Georges Feydeau and translated by Nicki Frie and Peter Hall, is sure to tempt show goers’ comedic palates. Whether looking for a fun date night, girls’ night out, or just some comic relief before the holiday frenzy begins, this show is for you.
The play is about a faithful wife, Lucienne Vatelin, who declares she will never cheat on her husband unless she finds he has first strayed. A friend of her husband, Edmond Pontagnac, claims he can prove that her husband, Crepin Vatelin, is planning a rendezvous that very evening in a local hotel. He sets out to prove the infidelity, hoping Lucienne will choose him when she is ready to avenge her husband’s deceit. In the second Act, three couples have accidentally been booked into the same hotel room, all with plenty to hide. The play spins out of control as everything that can go wrong does. Recommended for ages 13 and over.
The show runs November 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m., and November 10 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. General admission at the door is $10, and $8 for senior citizens and students. Discounted tickets can be purchased in advance at www.southcountytheatre.org.
