A Fitting Confusion

by Georges Feydeau
Translated by Norman R. Shapiro

Affairs of Lust and Laughter!

In turn of the century Paris, Doctor Moulineaux tries to hide his desire for a patient from his new wife. One hilarious confusion follows the next as a meddling butler, an angry mother-in-law, a misplaced wife another cheating husband, an absent dressmaker and the Queen of Greenland add to the entanglements.

"Controlled by rapacious desires, their middle-class facades buckle and bend in ways that defy physics...
"It is Feydeau we're watching..., but in Norman Shapiro's tranaslation of the 1886 script, we sense modern comic writers such as Woody Allen, Mel Brooks and Blake Edwards"
Kenneth Jones, Detroit News
