This traditional French bedroom farce involves the story of a husband whose wife misinterprets a note and suspects him of assignations in a hotel of low repute. She therefore addresses a letter to him in the guise of a smitten lady, makes an appointment at the hotel, and then goes to see how faithful he really is. “But” he says, “this could not be addressed to me” and gives it to his friend who goes instead. The complications come fast and furious! To add to the confusion, the hall porter in the hotel is the husband’s double. Throw in a mad Spaniard who runs amok with a pistol, and the result is mayhem!

By Georges Feybeau, translated by John Mortimer.
