Description: A Flea in Her Ear is the greatest of French farces, perhaps the greatest farce ever written. Set in Paris, the story centers around the comical misunderstandings between husbands and wives, lovers and friends. Believing that her husband is conducting a secret affair, Raymonde Chandebise devises a trap in the form of an anonymous love letter to catch him in the act. Soon the letter makes its way through their group of friends, setting off a chain of hilarity that includes shameless jealousy, mistaken identities, and lots of door slamming.
Set in 1960’s Paris, a raucous sex-romp that starts with a faux love letter, mixes speech miscommunications, foreign dialects, miscommunication and mistaken identities. The end result is David Ives’ complicated screwball of mass miscommunication.
Available Roles: 9M/5F
Some characters have a wide array of ages listed. This means that we are looking for the right character fit, and it only matters that those certain characters appear the same age as each other, rather than a specific age listed. In other cases, the age matters a great deal. Age descriptions indicate how old you look, not how old you are.
