A Flea in Her Ear Here is a modern adaptation by Andrew Upton of Georges Feydeau’s 1907 play that replaces the scandal of mere adultery with something outrageous enough to serve in these more decadent times. Simon Phillips directs this Sydney Theatre Company production with a feeling for the inexorable logic that underlies the absurdity of it all, and a splendidly choreographed cascade of stage business, full of doors, staircases, secret cupboards and pratfalls. We watch as the characters’ wily plans, secret desires and outraged reactions all lead to chaos. This is a work that exploits, to great comic effect, the constant surprise of human folly.
