About A Flea In Her Ear

The Old Vic & Sonia Friedman Productions present
A Flea in Her Ear
Georges Feydeau
Translation by John Mortimer

4 December 2010 - 5 March 2011

Richard Eyre directs A Flea in Her Ear, a high speed comedy of errors starring Tom Hollander. Eccentric and hilarious, Georges Feydeau's much loved comedy mixes madness, mayhem, fun and frivolity.

When the beautiful wife of Victor Chandebise suspects him of having an affair, she enlists the help of her dearest friend to entrap him. Their plan to entice him to a rendezvous at the Hotel Coq d'Or spectacularly misfires and chaos ensues.

Set in the decadent surroundings of Belle Epoque Paris, Feydeau's quintessential farce promises to be an exhilarating evening of mistaken identities and comic disaster.

Originally performed by The National Theatre at The Old Vic in 1966, John Mortimer's translation of A Flea in Her Ear starred Albert Finney and was later revived in 1989 starring Jim Broadbent.
