Area residents in Emporia State production of aEUR~The Ladies Man'
2012 Mar 1Area residents are involved with the Emporia State University Theatre production of "The Ladies Man," a new adaptation of Georges Feydeau's bedroom farce. The playwright Charles Morey provides a script loosely and freely translated from Feydeau's "Tailler Pour Dames." In the play, Dr. Molineaux is impotent, but his wife, Yvonne, thinks his lack of performance must be due to his infidelity. The doctor, recently married to his beautiful, young wife, cannot admit his problem, however, and lies about it, arousing her suspicions further.
