The Underpants

A Comedy by Carl Sternheim, adapted by Steve Martin

Presented with special permission from Samuel French, Inc.



In 1910 Germany, Louise Maske’s underpants fall down in public. Though she wore a long skirt, the whole town saw her bloomers and scandal ensues! Her husband, Theo, is mortified and fears Louise’s brief display will cost him his job, but instead it attracts two men, each of whom wants to rent the spare room in the Maske’s home and seduce Louise. A hilarious satire adapted from a classic Carl Sternheim play, this is a comedy that is funny on many different levels.
