Theatre in the Round Players looks to a German farce that has been adapted by one of America's most gifted comics to start its 63rd season. Legend Steve Martin adapted Carl Sternheim's play Die Hose for an off-Broadway run in 2002. Sternheim was a cultural critic who poked fun at the stiff expectations of German society in plays like Der Snob and Das Fossil. Die Hose was banned in 1911 for its content, as most of Sternheim's works would be during the later Nazi years. The play centers on Louise and Theo, a respectable early 20th-century couple. While the two are watching a parade, Louise's undergarments get loose and fall down to her ankles. This simple bit of public embarrassment has far-reaching consequences for the couple, and for Theo's career. Shanan Custer directs the work, which features Amy Pirkl as Louise and John T. Zeiler as Theo. This is the second go-round for Custer and Zieler on the TRP stage in a month. The two were also part of American Assassin: You Can't Handle the Booth at the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival. (Photo by Richard Fleischman)
