A full-length satirical play adapted by comic genius Steve Martin

This bawdy laugh-out-loud farce opens in scandal: conservative bureaucrat Theo Maske is outraged at his young wife Louise for allowing her bloomers to fall to the ground at a public parade for the king. As scandal unfolds into spectacle, a revolving door of infatuated would-be renters and one unabashedly nosy neighbor orbit around Louise.

Renaissance man Steve Martin has reinvigorated Carl Sternheim’s classic 1910 German play Die Hose for modern times. Filled with off-the-wall humor, wordplay, masterful banter, and Martin’s signature absurdity, The Underpants is an irreverent and witty satire on gender roles, our infatuation with sex, and the fleeting thrill of fame.
