You know you’ve got a hit on your hands when the laughter is as long, loud and frequent as it was the other night at the Dartmouth Players’ production of A Flea in Her Ear. This “French romp” was written in 1907, but proves great farce is funny in any era. First-time director Mike Tobin has done a remarkable job of balancing the performances from the hilariously over-the-top (Terry Coolen as the homicidal Spaniard Carlos Homenides, for example) to the calm and anchoring (Tamara Smith as Homenides’ plotting wife). The second act is a non-stop rollercoaster ride of slamming doors, mistaken identities, and (literally) revolving beds and while the third act lags a little, it eventually picks up steam and finishes strong. This play follows on the heels of an equally terrific Inherit the Wind, elevating Dartmouth Players to Sure Thing status. —Kate Watson
