Westport Playhouse -A Flea in Her Ear

07/10/2018 to 07/28/2018

25 Powers Court, Westport, CT Phone: 203-227-4177.

"A Flea in Her Ear," a new version of Georges Feydeau's farce, written by David Ives and directed by Mark Lamos, is scheduled July 10 – 28. The comedy is a co-production with Resident Ensemble Players at the University of Delaware. Raymonde has everything a turn-of-the-century Parisian housewife could want. Everything, that is, except for a husband who lavishes her with attention in bed. Doubting his fidelity, she gets a "flea in her ear," sending all involved on a wild ride of accusations, mistaken identities, and riotous confusions.
