Eccentric and hillarious, Georges Feydeau's much loved comedy mixes madness, mayhem, fun and frivolity. When the beautiful wife of Victor Chandebise suspects 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 exhilerating even of mistaken identities and comic disaster.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Where does one begin in praising Feydeau? Perhaps with the thrift and beauty of his plotting... The result is a heartlessly funny evening of whirlwind insanity; and my new year wish is that we return to a genre that Eric Bentley once dubbed "the quintessence of theatre."--Michael Billington, Guardian

"There's plenty here to suggest similarities between Feydeau and Basil Fawlty's demented world... and John Mortimer's translation still seems fresh after more than 40 years..."--Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

"Blissfully funny...Beautifully mounting delirium of split-second synchronicities, ridiculous revolving beds, and myriad misunderstandings, the hilarity heightened by the wit"--Paul Taylor, The Independent

"The very essence of belle- poque frivolity, but it does have an incredible level of structural organisation, which that Feydeau, although a famously idle fellow, must have had the mind of a first-class mathematician..."
--Christopher Hart, The Sunday Times

"According to the late John Mortimer, 'farce is tragedy played at a thousand revolutions a minute'. And he should know, having done the sparkling translation for Richard Eyre's delightful revival of Feydeau's best-known farce."--Georgina Brown, The Mail on Sunday
