Farce

A normally sober doctor awakens to find that he brought two things home from Maxim's last night: a hangover and a lady of the evening. His wife is diverted from discovering the tart by one of her famous visitations from a popular saint. The doctor's uncle returns after a long army tour in Africa and promptly mistakes the lady from Maxim's for his nephew's wife. Uncle's immediate business is marrying off a niece to a young soldier who turns out to be the true lover of the lady from Maxim's. Everybody is invited to the ceremony at the uncle's chateau where all courses collide. The master of bedroom farce unravels the confusion happily and innocently. The New York production featured witty original songs scored for piano which may be used at the producer's discretion.
