THE ALCOCK PLAYERS PRESENT:
AN ITALIAN STRAW HAT
by Eugene Labiche and Marc-Michel
Featuring Jesus College Big Band
35 Characters. 5 Actors. 1 Farce.
An Italian Straw Hat follows the hapless bridegroom Fadinard on his wedding day as he blazes through the streets of Paris and the idyllic French countryside on a futile quest to return a straw hat to a promiscuous young lady. Along the way Fadinard is followed by his pertinacious father-in-Law and eight cabs of wedding guests throwing at the audience a whirlwind of relentless activity.
Join these five intrepid actors as they are pushed to their limits to provide a dazzling multi-role extravaganza of a show. A celebration of vaudeville, it promises slapstick, dance, puppetry, a live band and cream pies. It will provide unadulterated mirth, joy and anarchy to the late-night Cambridge audiences. Farce like you’ve never seen it before.
