Limelight: A Flea in Her Ear

There are no rules, only ridiculous behavior, in "A Flea in Her Ear," one of the naughtiest French farces from the Belle Epoque era.

Please Note: This event is from 2020

The Limelight Theatre will be rescheduling this performance at a later date to be determined.

The Limelight Theatre presents A Flea in Her Ear, a turn-of-the-century French farce written by Georges Feydeau in 1907, from August 13 through 30, 2020. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sundays. There is a special Terrific Tuesday showing at 7:30 p.m. on August 18, 2020.

“Propriety takes a vacation and ribaldry rules the roost” in this Belle Epoque classic romp. The outrageous characters run through the corridors of The Frisky Puss, the most bourgeois hotel in Paris, leaving hilarious disaster (and clothing) in their wake.

The Limelight Theatre production of A Flea in Her Ear is directed by Jason Collins.
