Anything to Declare

Translated and adapted by Greg Leaming

From the play by Maurice Hennequin & Pierre Veber
Directed by Benny Sato Ambush

Paris, 1912. The well-to-do Dupont family is thrilled that their naïve young daughter has wed a wealthy count—until they learn that the marriage has yet to be consummated (it’s been more than a month!). Given mere days to provide his incensed mother-in-law with the promise of a titled grandson, the Count is desperate—in more ways than one! In classic farcical style, and accompanied by a colorful cast of characters, the clock ticks down, doors slam, identities are mistaken, and all hell breaks loose as the race to consummate the marriage catapults the action to…well, a climax!
