Hilberry Theatre

Steve Martin, legendary comedian and award-winning actor, has written this uproarious comedy based on the 1910 German farce Die Hose by Carl Sternheim. In the play, a well-respected, middle-class couple return home from the king’s parade where, as fate would have it, the wife’s underwear falls down in public igniting an overwhelming passion in several would-be suitors.
