SYNOPSIS:
Theobald Maske has an unusual problem…..his wife's underpants won't stay on. One Sunday morning they fall to her ankles right in the middle of town – a public scandal! Mortified, Theo swears to keep her at home until she can find some less unruly undies. Amid this chaos he's trying to rent a room in their flat. The prospective lodgers have some underlying surprises of their own. In The Underpants, Steve Martin brings his comic genius and sophisticated literary style to Carl Sternheim's classic 1910 farce.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

  • THEO MASKE (30 – 40 yrs.) – A burly muscular fireplug of a man with a buzz cut! A man of his time and his country!
  • LOUISE MASKE (20-30 yrs.) – Very pretty, mid twenties, Theo’s wife. Delightful, charming, and warm. She is an ideal woman of her time.
  • GERTRUDE DEUTER (30-40 yrs.) – The neighbor upstairs. A busybody who lives vicariously through Louise.
  • FRANK VERSATI (30-50 yrs.) – An elegant gentleman and poet who seeks out Louise.
  • BENJAMIN COHEN (30-40 yrs.) - Sickly, thin, asthmatic.
  • KLINGLEHOFF (60-80 yrs.) - An elderly man.  An extremely old fashioned widower and a prude!
