About this show

It's springtime in Paris, 1738. Metromania, a poetry craze, has the city in its grip. Damis, a young would-be poet with a serious case of verse-mania falls for a mysterious poetess from Breton, Meriadec de Peaudoncqville (say it). She turns out to be none other than a wealthy gentleman (yes, that's right) with a touch of the mania himself — looking to unload his sexy but dimwitted daughter, who also just happens to be cuckoo for couplets. Soon scheming servants, verbal acrobatics, and mistaken identities launch a breathless series of twists and turns in this breezy "transladaptation" of a rediscovered French farce by comedic master David Ives (The Liar).
