Of bloomers and blunders
By Steve Martin
Adapted from the play Die Hose by Carl Sternheim
Directed by Teresa K. Pond
In Steve Martin’s bawdy comedy, a beautiful young woman finds that her bloomers have fallen down at a royal parade, and comedic chaos ensues. She is sure no one noticed, but her possessive husband panics while a nosy neighbor and a bevy of suitors descend upon their flat in this uproarious tale gleefully adapted from Carl Steinheim’s 1910 German Farce, Die Hose.
