SUMMARY

Its heady mix of passions, pace and pleasure are the perfect mix for a good night out. The plot is simple: Lucienne is being pursued by the married Pontagnac, who is astounded to discover that she is already married to his friend Vatelin. Lucienne has sworn to be faithful as long as her husband remains so too. But then a keen old ‘indiscretion’ of her husband’s arrives with her own husband from Germany in tow.

Everyone ends up in the Hotel Ultimus, where the guests include an old army doctor and his deaf wife in Paris to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Beds are swopped, infidelities discovered and everyone’s Goose is cooked good and proper!

Untrustworthy husbands, betrayed wives, artful servants and crazed Germans demonstrate why the "naughty nineties" were so named, as master French farceur Feydeau's sparkling play switches from riotous farce to barbed social satire.
