Written by WMU faculty member Jay Berkow, this bawdy and flirty farce is adapted from the Alexander Dumas novel "Fernande." It tells the comical story of a prestigious family trying to find a cure for love. Affairs abound and the characters find themselves up to their corset laces in chaos—all in the name of love.

WMU theatre professor Jim Daniels directs the all-student cast, which includes Jody Burns, Susie Parr, Andi Foster, Sara Bower, Ethan Hedeen, Aleks Krapivkin and Brian Martin. This will be Daniels' final production at WMU before he retires.
