PARAMUS, N.J. – The Bergenstages season continues with the funny and farcical “A Flea in Her Ear” – full of slamming doors, mistaken identities and sexual innuendo – Friday, Dec. 1 at Bergen Community College’s Anna Maria Ciccone Theatre.
Set in France, David Ives’ new version of Georges Feydeau’s 20th century farce centers around a wife, Raymonde Chandebise, suspecting her husband, Victor Chandebise, of being unfaithful. With the help of a friend, Raymonde attempts to catch and confront Victor at the Frisky Puss Hotel – notorious for extramarital affairs – where chaos ensues. Adding to the marital mayhem, the hotel’s drunken porter bears a striking resemblance to Victor.
The show will run from Friday, Dec. 1 to Saturday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, Dec. 2 and Dec. 9, matinee performances take place at 2 p.m. All performances will be held at the College’s main campus, 400 Paramus Road, Paramus.
Show ticket prices for the general public are $15, with discounts offered to senior citizens, Bergen faculty and students. Guests can purchase tickets by calling (201) 447-7428 or online at tickets.bergen.edu.
