Prepare yourself for a night of bed-hopping, as the Village Playhouse presents George Feydeau’s French farce A Flea in Her Ear. Written in 1907 at the height of the Belle Epoch, Flea finds Raymonde Chandebise in sexual turmoil over her husband Victor’s lack of arousal in the bedroom. Raymonde believes that her husband is having an affair and devises a plan to catch him in the act. Victor mistakes the love note written to him and gives it to his best friend Tournel, a notorious womanizer. With mistaken identities and revolving beds, no wonder Feydeau was the master of the French bedroom farce. Flea was his most popular play in English-speaking countries, and according to the press release, “Feydeu’s appeal stems from his ability to heighten the yearnings and weaknesses of ordinary persons caught in a net devised by his or her own foolishness.” —Emma Hart
