A FLEA IN HER EAR
This production began performances on 2nd December 2010 and closed on 4th March 2011.
A Flea in Her Ear makes a triumphant return... blissfully funny.
When Raymonde Chandebise (Lisa Dillon) believes her husband, Victor Emmanuel (Tom Hollander) is having an affair, she and her old friend Lucienne devise what they believe is a simple plan to catch him out. However, their plan misfires when the letter they have sent sets in motion a myriad of confusion and suspicion, involving everyone from the servants to a member of the Spanish aristocracy.
Tom Hollander mixes manic energy with moments of goggling incredulity… skillfully executed.
The Old Vic and Sonia Friedman Productions present “A FLEA IN HER EAR” by Georges Feydeau – Translation by John Mortimer.
Impeccably cast... Richard Eyre’s frenetic, precise production is a delight.
