The Newtown Woman’s Club, GFWC, Inc. is hosting a fund raiser on Friday, December 7th at the Little Theater, 18 Orchard Hill Road, Newtown. The Town Players are presenting The Underpants, by Carl Sternheim and adapted by Steve Martin. Tickets are $25 each, and include wine and cheese at 7:30 PM. Curtain is at 8 pm. A raffle will be held during intermission. This performance contains adult themes and may not be appropriate for children under the age of 12. Be prepared for a laugh-filled evening.
The performance is about Petty German bureaucrat Theo Maske, who has an unusual problem: his wife’s underpants just won’t stay on. One ordinary Sunday morning, they fell off right in the middle of town, creating a very unwelcome scandal. The mortified Theo, worried about not only his standing as a citizen but also his position in the local bureaucracy, is determined to keep Louise at home until she can find a more decorous pair of undies. Amid this chaos, the straitlaced Theo is also trying to rent a room in their flat – but the prospective renters have some underlying surprises of their own.
That wild and crazy guy, Steve Martin, brings his legendary comic genius and sophisticated literary style to this classic 1910 farce by Carl Sternheim.
