, which will run Oct. 8-Nov. 13. Feydeau's long lived French farce deals with (surprise!) love and infidelity. The play throws its characters into a whirlwind of confusion with jealous husbands, betrayed wives and assorted mistress and gigolos converging on the same sleazy hotel.

Inherit the Wind deals with the 1925 court trial over the teaching of evolution in American public schools. Clarence Darrow (for the defense) and William Jennings Bryan (for the prosecution) enter into a battle of minds and wits.

The Santa Monica Theatre Guild operates out of the Morgan-Wixson Theatre, 2627 Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica. For tickets and information call (310) 828-7519.
