Georges Feydeau's "A Flea in Her Ear," arguably the French playwright's most celebrated work, is now being staged by University of Minnesota Duluth Theatre at the school's Marshall Performing Arts Center.

The play, which opened on Valentine's Day, will be staged through Saturday, Feb. 23.

Written in 1907, "Flea" is described as a "Parisian door-slamming, pants-dropping, bodice-ripping, mistaken-identity, bed-revolving farce" that was the toast of the Paris Boulevard theaters.

Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15-16 and 20-23.

Additionally, a special ASL-interpreted matinee performance will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17.
