Our 29th Season

Written by Steve Martin
Directed by Lynne Colatrella

The Underpants is a 90-minute romp set in Germany, 1910. The renowned comic actor and author of Picasso at the Lapine Agile provides a wild satire adapted from the classic German play about Louise and Theo Maske, a couple whose conservative existence is shattered when Louise's bloomers fall down in public. Though she pulls them up quickly, he thinks the incident will cost him his job as a government clerk. Louise's momentary display does not result in the feared scandal but it does attract two infatuated men, each of whom wants to rent the spare room in the Maske's home. Oblivious of their amorous objectives, Theo splits the room between them, happy to collect rent from both the foppish poet and the whiny hypochondriac. The Underpants sends up the absurdity of instant fame.  Contains some adult content ...think NC-17 rating.
