A Flea in Her Ear

The Lynn Theatre Mainstage is proud to present David Ives' new version of Georges Feydeau's classic farce, A Flea in Her Ear!

The lovely Raymonde Chandebise wonders why her husband has stopped visiting her bedroom, and assumes he must be having an affair. So she asks her friend Lucienne to write him a love letter meant to lure him to a rendezvous where she can catch him in the act of being unfaithful. But when Raymondes (very faithful) husband Victor Emmanuel receives the letter, he assumes its for his bachelor friend Tournel and gives it to him instead, setting in motion a hilarious series of events that bounces from the Chandebise home to a hotel of ill repute, where anything (and apparently everyone) goes.

Performances on select dates November 10 – 19, 2023. Tickets are $10, or free with a Brightpoint Student ID. Directed by Foster Solomon. Recommended for audiences age 13 and up.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Foster Solomon

A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies. It follows four young lovers: Hermia, Demetrius, Lysander, and Helena as they escape parental interference and flee into the woods. The lovers become entangled with the fairy kingdom as the mischievous Puck casts spells on them for the entertainment of the King and Queen of the fairies. A band of would-be actors who have come to the woods to rehearse are also caught in the spell. In the end, order is restored, love triumphs and the play within a play is performed as a wedding gift. Our production sets the play in the 60's and 70's so get ready for some serious disco madness!
