Tuesday, July 18, 2017 0 Comments

Theobald Maske has an unusual problem…..his wife's underpants won't stay on. One Sunday morning they fall to her ankles right in the middle of town – a public scandal! Mortified, Theo swears to keep her at home until she can find some less unruly undies. 

Amid this chaos he's trying to rent a room in their flat. The prospective lodgers have some underlying surprises of their own. In The Underpants, Steve Martin brings his comic genius and sophisticated literary style to Carl Sternheim's classic 1910 farce which is scheduled to be performed by The Main Street Players from September 29 to October 22 at the Main Street Playhouse.
