The Underpants at Perseverance Theatre

The Underpants by Steve Martin.

Adapted from the play Die Hose by Carl Sternheim. Directed by Theresa K. Pond. 

In Steve Martin’s uproarious tale, a beautiful young woman attending a royal parade finds that her bloomers have fallen down around her ankles. Ooops! She is sure no one noticed, but her modest husband is mortified and rushes off to assess the level of gossip. Boarders, nosy neighbors, and sudden new suitors fill the script gleefully adapted from Carl Steinheim’s 1910 German Farce, Die Hose. This bawdy comedy of manners finds crazy humor in the gender politics that are still relevant after more than 100 years.
