Synopsis

Ukyo, a badly henpecked husband, wants a night away from home. He wraps himself in a heavy blanket and tells his harridan of a wife that he is going to spend the night praying in their garden. When she goes to bed, he forces his servant to take his place under the blanket, and Ukyo slips out. Discovering the ruse, the wife takes the servant's place and awaits her husband's return. Everybody enjoys what happens next except poor Ukyo—and even he gets a "kick" out of it.

Customer Reviews

"The Undercover Lover was a perfect choice for my students. This farce allowed them to play up their characterizations and work on comedic timing as part of an ensemble."

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"We maximized our rehearsals by working scenes separately. Then when the full cast came together to run the play they enjoyed the "reveal". It is very important to have 100% attendance to get the transitions down."
