By Georges Feydeau
Directed by Gus Kaikkonen
One of the funniest farces by the all-time grandmaster of the form, Paradise Hotel centers on an unhappily married engineer, Benoit Pinglet, who arranges a secret rendezvous with his business partner’s gorgeous young wife, Marcelle. When the lovers arrive at a notorious Parisian love hotel, their plans become complicated by the hotel’s oddball staff and eccentric guests—including Pinglet’s lascivious maid and the young philosophy student she’s set her sights on, a thick-headed friend of Pinglet’s with four beautiful daughters, plus Marcelle’s husband to boot! A classic, fast-paced bedroom farce full of hilarious mistaken identities ensues.
