Unnecessary Farce

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.

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.

"Dazzlingly funny. Can a playwright re-invent the comic shtick of in-one-door, innuendo, out-the-other-door? In the case of Unnecessary Farce, the answer is yes."
- City Pulse (Lansing, Michigan)

"Actors have an edge when it comes to writing for actors. Just ask Molière. Actor/Playwright Paul Slade Smith certainly has the knack. And like the farceurs of old, he relies on character, rather than contrivance, to drive his increasingly frenzied, unrelentingly funny plot."
- The Boston Globe

"The funniest two hours of theater I have seen in several years. Something is at stake every second, and the most outrageous moments seem spontaneous and logical."
- Post-Standard (Syracuse, New York)
