A bright French farce about a greedy merchant who finds himself snookered into being a matchmaker for two daughters, one the child of his wife and the other the maid's offspring. Rebellious young ladies, a comely new maid, pregnant ladies and mistaken identities lead to explosive hilarity. A larcenous employee who has embezzled half a million dollars even offers to return it for a managerial position and the daughter's hand. Half of the loot is in diamonds and half in cash the stashes in separate but identical bags. A third identical bag contains the maid's skivvies.
"A mad narrative...There is a lot of fun and so much pleasantly lunatic humor...Genuinely hilarious," - The New York Post
