TWU rises up with flea-ridden farce ‘A Flea in Her Ear’

Texas Woman’s University presents the French farce A Flea in Her Ear next week.

Adapted by David Ives, A Flea in Her Ear begins with a suspicious wife who is convinced her husband is having an affair after she receives a mysterious pair of suspenders in the mail. The wife conspires with her best friend to test her husband’s fidelity. How? By inviting him to an anonymous rendezvous at the Frisky Puss Hotel.

The flimsy trap sets off a mad dash through Paris involving mistaken identities, drunken doppelgangers, indecipherable servants, crazed Castilians and an unpredictable revolving bed.

A Flea in Her Ear was written by Georges Feydeau in 1907. TWU drama faculty member Steven Young directs the production.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday; 4 p.m. next Thursday, April 10; 8 p.m. April 11; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. April 12; and 2 p.m. April 13.

Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for students with valid ID and seniors.

TWU offers a pay-what-you-can option at the April 13 performance, available at the door only.
