Ah, Paris! The genteel Madame Chandebise has everything an upper-class woman could want, until her loving husband suddenly and inexplicably loses all physical interest in her. Suspicion puts “a flea in her ear,” and she must test her husband’s fidelity. A perfumed letter leads the respectable couple to the city’s most notorious hotel, where a cavalcade of wacky characters run amok through the corridors, leaving tumult, and occasionally suspenders, in their wake. Widely regarded as one of the funniest farces ever written, A Flea in Her Ear is a can’t-miss confection of mistaken identities, riotous confusions and sidesplitting hilarity!
