Herkimer County Community College’s Generals Theater Group will present A Flea in Her Ear, a farce written by Georges Feydeau and translated by David Ives. In this award winning play, Victor Chandebise, a young insurance executive, is suspected of having an affair. His wife, Raymonde, concocts an elaborate plot to entrap him at the shady, and suggestive, Frisky Puss hotel. At the Frisky Puss there is a drunken bellboy named Poche who looks exactly like Victor. After much chaos, confusion, mistaken identities, pistols, and a revolving bed, all involved flee back to the home of Victor Chandebise to, hopefully, sort out all the commotion and return to normal.
This “adults only” show will be held in the McLaughlin College Center’s Sarkus-Busch theater on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27 , at 7 pm. Performances are free and open to the public. The show is directed by senior Christina Carroll, Utica, a Liberal Arts & Sciences: General Studies major, with assistance from Matthew Powers, Generals Theater Group advisor and English Instructor.
Powers said the organization, in addition to bringing theatrical productions to the College and local community, provides students with hands-on experience in various roles including acting, directing, stage and house management. For questions about the show please contact Matthew Powers at 866-0300, extension 8636.
