While Martin is best known as a comedic actor, he also penned acclaimed plays and has written hit films. Steven Fenley, artistic director of Texas Rep, says, “Martin’s adaptation of this early German farce brings the comedy squarely into our own time with its literate and sophisticated look at fame and gender. All of this is whipped up by Martin into a witty, laugh-out-loud comedy of manners.”
