Every Last Trick

Georges Feydeau/Tamsin Oglesby
 
‘My dear fellow. Dreadfully sorry. I’ll be marrying your wife.’

A charming politician and his glamorous new wife evoke a picture of marital bliss. Her first husband was a liar and a cheat. Her second is a different batch of chromosomes altogether. Not only is he chairman of the Feminist Forum but he clearly adores her. He says so, repeatedly, usually on Thursday nights when he goes out to ‘stretch his legs’. Her suspicions are obviously hormonal. But when he resorts to illusion to maintain the delusion, well, there’s a lot of confusion. If experience has taught her anything it’s the need to fight fire with fire, lies with more lies and every last trick with pure magic…

Flea in her Ear, A

Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Georges Feydeau
 

A classic French farce from 1907.

A suspicious wife sets a trap to expose her supposedly faithless husband. The husband however bears an uncanny resemblance to a drunken porter, and when circumstances bring the two into proximity in the seedy Hotel Casblanca, all hell breaks loose.

Translated by Kenneth McLeish, with an introduction by Stephen Mulrine.
