The University of Virginia Drama Department will close its 2013-2014 season with the Georges Feydau’s classic farce A Flea in Her Ear, which will open on April 17 at the Ruth Caplin Theatre.

The setting is Paris, at the dawn of the 20th Century. A suspicious wife sets the farcical wheels in motion for a wild comedic ride that features mistaken identities, narrow escapes, secret rendezvous, crazy coincidences and little lies that grow bigger by the minute. Before long, everyone is drawn into the comedic vortex, and it’s hard to imagine how the truth will ever re-emerge!

A Flea in Her Ear, featuring a translation by John Mortimer, will be directed by Colleen Kelly, and presented in The Ruth Caplin Theatre from April 17-19 and April 23-26, 2014 at 8pm.

Ticket prices for A Flea in Her Ear are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and U.Va. staff and alumni association members and $8 for students. Tickets are available online at www.artsboxoffice.virginia.edu, by calling 434-924-3376 or in-person from noon until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at the U.Va. Arts Box Office, located in the lobby of the Drama building.  Read more . . .
