The Dingdong

A new adaptation by Mark Shanahan

from Le Dindon by Georges Feydeau

Vatelin is a faithful husband – mostly.  Lucy is a faithful wife – kind of.   But their “fidelity” will be put to the test when a series of sly suitors and femmes fatales invade their cozy little world?  

Dive headfirst into the misadventures of one madcap night in two Parisian hotels in this fast-
paced adaptation of Georges Feydeau’s classic farce, and discover how opening the wrong door in the dark of night can lead to mayhem, laughter, and some unlikely revelations about the secret to a happy marriage. 

Originally developed at TheatreSquared’s 2015 Arkansas New Play Festival.
