CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Get ready to be amused as a hilarious series of events unfold when The Lynn Theatre at Brightpoint Community College brings David Ives’ new version of George Feydeau's classic farce, A Flea in Her Ear, to the stage. 

The lovely Raymonde Chandebise wonders about changes in her marriage and assumes her husband, Victor, is having an affair. So, she asks her friend Lucienne to write her husband a love letter meant to lure him to a rendezvous where Raymonde can catch him being unfaithful. What transpires is a series of incorrect assumptions that spark a number of hysterical events!
