This fast-paced, laugh-a-minute farce takes place in Belle Époque Paris in the early 1900’s. The recently married Dr. Hercule Molineaux tells “one tiny, little, hardly noticeable lie” to cover an innocent but embarrassing indiscretion of a trip to the Moulin Rouge. From that single untruth tumbles a cascade of increasingly convoluted deceptions, misunderstandings and mistaken identities. Compounding Molineaux’s troubles are a suspicious young wife, a gorgon of a mother-in-law, an outrageously aggressive female patient, her violently jealous Prussian husband, a well-intentioned friend with an unfortunate speech impediment, a valet with attitude, a maid with a secret, and more slamming doors than realistic architecture should ever accommodate, all adding up to a hilariously zany and infectiously charming evening.
