Playwright Georges Feydeau wrote “A Flea in Her Ear” more than 100 years ago. Now, modern-day playwright David Ives has updated this intentionally ridiculous bedroom farce. Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College, formerly CMC Theatre, is presenting it in a five-performance run in April.
Directed by Brad Moore, the play takes the audience to Paris in 1900. A jealous wife suspects her husband of cheating on her, and tries setting him up to catch him in the act. What follows is a dizzying array of mistaken identities, secret passages and rotating beds – and all at a rendezvous spot named the Frisky Puss Hotel.
Curtain is 7 p.m. on April 10-11 and 16-18, and 2 p.m. on April 12 and 19, at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.
Tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for seniors, students and CMC faculty and staff, and are available by calling 947-8177 or going to coloradomtn.edu/theatre or http://bit.ly/1DTwtJa.
