Vatelin is a faithful husband – mostly. Lucy is a faithful wife – kind of. But their “fidelity” will be put to the test when a series of sly suitors and femme’s fatales invade their cozy little world!
The Story starts with an overzealous lady’s man Dr. Potegnac who has followed the demure Lucy home and assailed her with various lewd proposals. But Lucy isn’t listening. She prides herself on her fidelity to her husband, Vatelin, and believes that he holds her in the same regard. If he were ever untrue, however, “I’d take a lover in a heartbeat,” she tells Potegnac. He seizes the opportunity to prove that her husband is also a philanderer.
Potegnac then invites her to go under cover and catch Vatelin in several compromising positions at a nearby hotel that night. A feisty Italian, a battling Hungarian, a brazen American, and a virginal bellhop are just a few of the 13 characters in the show, played by Five actors, who end up traipsing through the suite. Hilarity ensues and everything that could possibly go wrong does.
Dive headfirst into the misadventures of one madcap night in two Parisian hotels in this fast-paced adaptation of Georges Feydeau’s classic farce “Le Dindon” and discover how opening the wrong door in the dark of night can lead to mayhem, laughter, and some unlikely revelations about the secret to a happy marriage.
