Paradise Hotel is a translation into English of the French farce L'Hotel du Libre Echange by Georges Feydeau. The story centers around a middle-aged man, Benoit Pinglet, who after 20 years of marriage, arranges a rendez-vous with the beautiful young wife of his business partner and best friend, Henri Paillardin. Alas, sexual infidelity is a tough secret to keep, as Pinglet finds out at the Paradise Hotel in this hysterical, door-slamming, narrowly-escaping-getting-caught comedy of errors. At SDSU's Don Powell Theatre Nov. 19 to Dec. 5. Don't miss it!
Phlegm, not Puce
Actors: Sonia has opted to go with a light green color for Madame Paillardin's infamous "puce" dress. Since puce is a reddish-brown color (the color of a flea; puce means "flea" in French), the lines referring to the puce dress are changed to the "phlegm" dress. Please make a note in your scripts.
