Full Length Play


In a bubbly translation of this internationally famous play, the world of l'amour is turned upside down. Doctor Moulineaux is having an innocent affair (hoping it will "improve") with one of his married patients. In an attempt to conceal a recent indiscretion, he tells his wife that he has been sitting up all night with a terminally sick friend, who at that very moment appears on the scene trying to rent Moulineaux a furnished apartment. Moulineaux rents the apartment, proposing a secret rendezvous with his mistress. Her husband, however, accompanies her to the love nest and mistakes Moulineaux for a dressmaker. This signals a series of impulsive coverups and wild antics which in turn result in absolute chaos. As complication is added to complication, the pace continues to build until the entire world seems to have gone mad. The couples are finally reunited and a semblance of order restored, but one senses that tomorrow it will probably start all over again! Two int. sets. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes.
