East Hampton's Guild Hall is set to present another hilarious comedy this summer. The Underpants, by comedian, actor, writer, producer, and musician Steve Martin, is sure to have you laughing out loud. The play, which was adapted from Carl Sternheim, is directed by Bill Fennelly, and will feature Michael Brian Dunn, Marianna McClellan, Tuck Milligan, Daniel Passer, Sabrina Profitt, and Mark David Watson. The cast will come to the Hamptons straight from their critically-acclaimed run at Syracuse Stage, where the production received phenomenal reviews.

The Underpants is set in 1910 Berlin and focuses on the gorgeous, sex deprived wife of a self-righteous civil servant. One day, the wife accidentally drops her underpants, beginning a scandalous uproar.

"It's a sublimely smart and silly piece by one of America's foremost comedic geniuses - Steve Martin - that will be brought to life with intelligent direction and artful design," said Josh Gladstone, Artistic Director of The John Drew Theater at Guild Hall. "The laughs are plentiful, the characters are as zany as they are sexy in this outrageous sex farce, and anybody who could use a good laugh and wants to kick off the summer season with some GENUINE FUN will not be disappointed. Plus, there will be beer!"

The Underpants will open Thursday, June 9th at the John Drew Theater and run Tuesdays through Sundays until Sunday, June 26th. Previews for the comedy will take place on Thursday, June 9th and Friday, June 10th at 8 p.m., and the Opening Night Curtain will rise on Saturday, June 11th at 7 p.m.

"Brilliant writing, colorful characters, a gifted ensemble of professional actors well versed in clowning and comedy - The Underpants has all the ingredients for a truly excellent evening of entertainment and hilarity," remarked Gladstone. "We are always thrilled when the walls of the John Drew Theater shake with laughter, and when our audiences spill out after a show smiling, recharged and buzzing with the vital energy that comes from being immersed in the world of a great play."

Tickets to the production range from $38 to $120.

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information, call 631-324-4050 or visit www.guildhall.org.
