The Virtuous Burglar

The owner of a flat returns unexpectedly with his mistress, and discovers a burglar.  When the owner’s wife arrives, the burglar is forced to pretend the mistress is his wife.  A profusion of spouses and lovers appear and the burglar — apparently the only one not having an affair — is forced into pretending to have multiple wives.  Then his own wife arrives!


Playwright: Dario Fo
