Rockdale’s Guild Theatre stages The Underpants as its July / August 2016 production.
The Underpants is an adaptation of the 1910 German farce Die Hose by Carl Sternheim. It was written as a send-up of bourgeois snobbery and conformity along with issues of anti-Semitism, misogyny and bureaucracy. Sound intellectual? Think again as this drawers-dropping farce flies high with double-entendres, amorous conniving and a healthy dose of slapstick.
