AFleainHerEar / La Pulga en la Oreja
Comments Interesting Argentinian artwork complete with love hearts and Tiffany glass for this comedy which had success at London in the National Theatre. Two small brown stains at the foot of the poster as seen.
Comments This interesting artwork by Tom Chantrell portrays the two sets of couples in bed together with the brick wall between them indicating that they are neighbours. The 'X' certificate confirms that this adaptation by John Mortimer of 'Rumpole' fame from the play by Georges Feydeau was considered a risque farce in it's day. The sixties bedspread is a wonderful creation - but do gentlemen really wear straw boaters in bed.
Feydeau's classic farce AFleainHerEar takes place at the Cuddly Kitten Hotel at Montretout at the turn of the 20th Century. A jealous French housewife plots to expose her husband's extra-marital affairs but in setting a trap for her other half Madame Chandebise may be about to discover a lover of her own... Paranoia infidelity and lechery take centre stage in this raucous bedroom farce. An hysterical cocktail of chaos that could only have been devised by the master of comic stagecraft Feydeau.
AFleaInHerEar stars Tom Hollander and Lisa Dillon, and is a comedy of errors set against a backdrop of jealousy, misunderstandings and confrontation. When Raymonde (Dillon) suspects her husband Victor (Hollander) of being unfaithful, she enlists the help of a friend to set a trap resulting in mistaken identities, bruised egos and comic disaster.
The wife of an insurance magnate, suspicious that her husband is having an affair, sends him a lascvicious invitation from an "anonymous" admirer, just to see if he'll show. The action of AFleainHerEar, one of the best-known French farces, takes us to the sleazy Lanterne Rouge Hotel with a fine crop of mocking, kicking and mimicking, all ina spanking new translation.
