This outrageously funny adaptation of Carl Sternheim's classic German comedy is the latest theatrical work by comedic genius Steve Martin, following his Outer Critics Circle Award-winning play Picasso at the Lapin Agile. The Underpants recounts the trials that befall a young housewife after her underwear accidentally fall down before everyone in attendance at the procession of the king. The incident incites a public scandal and awakens the passions of some determined new suitors intent on making their way into her home and her affections -- much to the dismay of her suspicious husband. Steve Martin brings a sophisticated literary sensibility to this entertaining romp, examining the politics of sex and sexism.
