The Dingdong

Freely adapted by Mark Shanahan
from Le Dindon by Georges Feydeau
May 10-June 4, 2017

Vatelin is a faithful husband – mostly. Lucy is a faithful wife – kind of. But their “fidelity” will be put to the test when a series of sly suitors and femmes fatales invade their cozy little world. Dive headfirst into the misadventures of one madcap night in two Parisian hotels in this fast-paced adaptation of Georges Feydeau’s classic farce, and discover how opening the wrong door in the dark of night can lead to mayhem, laughter, and some unlikely revelations about the secret to a happy marriage.

“Delightful. Keep an eye on your spouse, and your hat."  - The New Yorker

Join us for a special T2 Artist Forum with adapter Mark Shanahan, who previously directed Around the World in 80 Days and Peter and the Starcatcher at T2. Join Shanahan, director Morgan Hicks, and T2 artistic director Robert Ford for an in-depth discussion of the play's journey from an idea, to its early development at the Arkansas New Play Festival, to the latest current production at T2. Along the way, expect excursions into the current state of American theatre, and why farce is essential to life.
