The Story: Paris, 1915- Three couples have accidentally been booked
into the same hotel room, all with plenty to hide. Georges Feydeau's
elegantly complex play gets new life in this a smart, seamless, and
acutely funny translation by Peter Hall and Nicki Frei. All of
Feydeu’s dramatic tricks come out to play as his characters are pulled
back and forth through an elaborate plot before spinning into a
surrealistic climax of complications.
As the characters are pulled back and forth by an escalating series of
complications, the sharp, natty, decorously vapid dialogue comes to
life fast, elegant, and sassy, like a collection of cut-throat razors
dancing the cancan.
