Synopsis

A Flea in Her Ear is Georges Feydeau’s wild and hilarious comedy of mistaken identities, motives and actions. Raymonde, the wife of Chandebise, suspects him of having an affair. When she receives “evidence” of his infidelity, she decides to catch him in the act. As it turns out, Chandebise is a good and faithful husband. Raymonde’s plot backfires, leading to chaos. The entire cast ends up at a hotel that specializes in romantic tete-a-tetes, chasing each other through slamming doors or in beds that spin, seeing double, misunderstanding everything that’s going on, and getting thrashed by an insane Englishman while they’re at it. In the end, all confusion is laid to rest, and Chandebise and Raymonde promise to be better spouses to each other.
