 A hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Three unlikely friends conspire to take control of their company and learn that there’s nothing they can’t do—even in a “man’s world.” Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.

Unnecessary Farce – May 11-20, 2018

By Paul Slade Smith   |   Director, Stephen Rourke

In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant–while in the room next door two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there’s some confusion as to who’s in which room, who’s being videotaped, who’s taken the money, who’s hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. Dazzlingly funny!
