About this show

Paris, 1912. The Dupont family is thrilled that their naïve daughter Paulette has married Count Robert de Trivelin. Upon return from their honeymoon, it's learned that the young bridegroom has yet to consummate the marriage. He suffers from a psychological block brought on by a train guard yelling out a phrase at an, uh…inopportune moment. Since that disruption, the Count has been unable to perform his marital duty. With only three days left to meet his mother-in-law's demand for a grandson, the Count seeks the assistance of Zeze, a courtesan passing herself off to her clientele as a prominent artist. Dupont family members manage to parade through Zeze's salon and back to the Dupont home, along with a sobbing ex-suitor of the bride, a camel dealer of unknown origin, and a maid desperate to break ties with Zeze and start a career of her own. The clock ticks, identities are mistaken, and all hell breaks loose as a chaotic race to consummate the marriage catapults the action to….a climax!
