This hilarious frolic launched Feydeau in Paris as the Neil Simon of his day. Take one philandering husband, his virtuous wife and a doctor and toss them together at 13 Rue de L'Amour where a love starved German countess is the concierge. This fast-paced farce is filled with fibs, twists and turns in a series of unfortunate events in 1800s Paris.

On the third Wednesday of every month Theatre Southwest holds it's monthly Membership meeting. Far from a tedious recap of the monthly business (oh, there's some of that, but only the necessary stuff) we entertain our members with either a scene from the show currently in rehearsal, or a workshop scene directed and rehearsed by our members. The public is welcome, so please attend. We would love to see you there.
