February 2016:

Rehearsals have started for Steve Martin’s THE UNDERPANTS at the International Theatre Frankfurt, in which Anna is excited to be playing the lead of Louise.


The Underpants takes place in Dusseldorf in 1910. Theo and his wife Louise have a vacant room in their apartment. One unfortunate morning, while Louise attends a parade to try to catch a glimpse of the king, her underpants fall to her ankles. Theo is humiliated: “I can’t believe this happened to me!” Suddenly the couple has not one, but two renters: Versati and Cohen. Having witnessed the panty scandal, both men secretly confess their love to Louise and begin to battle for her favour. Louise’s nosy upstairs neighbour Gertrude advises Louise to welcome an affair. As Versati and Cohen squabble over who is the better man, and Theo remains oblivious to both the renters’ intentions and his wife’s charm, Louise begins to learn a powerful lesson in how she can obtain what she desires.
