1907 French farce gets 21st century update, lands on the CMC stage

Playwright Georges Feydeau wrote “A Flea in Her Ear” more than 100 years ago. Now, modern-day playwright David Ives has updated this intentionally ridiculous bedroom farce. Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College, formerly CMC Theatre, is presenting it in a five-performance run in April.

Directed by Brad Moore, the play takes the audience to Paris in 1900. A jealous wife suspects her husband of cheating on her, and tries setting him up to catch him in the act. What follows is a dizzying array of mistaken identities, secret passages and rotating beds – and all at a rendezvous spot named the Frisky Puss Hotel.

Curtain is 7 p.m. on April 10-11 and 16-18, and 2 p.m. on April 12 and 19, at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114.

Tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for seniors, students and CMC faculty and staff, and are available by calling 947-8177 or going to coloradomtn.edu/theatre or http://bit.ly/1DTwtJa.

WITH ANNIE STEPHENS

This is an inspirational and uplifting look into how to actively connect, share memories and talk about grief and loss. All of us experience grief and it is important to learn how to navigate (not avoid) the journey. Annie shares her own story of losing her son, and a tool she created to help her family grieve.

This dialogue is part of our Gift of Learning Series, a number of free lectures and workshops presented by CMC students and staff at our Lappala Center in Carbondale. To learn more, call 963-2172.
