The Fall Guy

The Fall GuyT01275713300
A polished and sexy comedy that captures the quintessential essence of French farce. The Fall Guy is a translation of Feydeau's Le Dindon. Monsieur Pontagnac adores woman - respectable, married women especially. He cannot help pursue them through the streets of Paris. His latest quarry Lucienne, is proving more than a match; not only is he wooed by other suitors, she is his best friend's wife, and worse, faithful to her husband. The esteemed Monsieur Vatelin would never give her cause to break her marriage vows would he? Secret assignations and rising passions lead all parties to a night of surprise and scandal at the racy Hotel Ultimus. Paris, the capital of stylish chic, becomes the capital of uncontrollable lust. Husbands and wives, lovers and mistresses, are all in mad pursuit of pleasure with only one rule - don't get caught.
Author Georges Feydeau
