Unnecessary Farce is an award-winning stage comedy by Paul Slade Smith that combines all the elements of classic farce with a contemporary American plot.

Previews: Review:
  • "simultaneously hilarious and aggravating" — BRIAN TROMPETER — Sun-Gazette - Inside NOVA
  • "jam-packed with all the classic tropes" — Caroline Simpson — DC Metro Theater Arts
In an economy motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant. In the room next door, two undercover cops are supposed to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's in which room, who's watching the video, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes.

Adult language. Suitable for ages 15-up. Running time is about 2 hours, including a 15-minute intermission.
