"Unnecessary Farce" -- April 23 to May 10, 2015

A comedy by Paul Slade Smith
Directed by Marc Moritz

Two cops. Three crooks. Eight Doors. Go!

Thus begins a wild, theatrical ride that The Fort Worth Star Telegram called “A laugh-till-you-weep comedy on a par with Noises Off.”

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 occupying 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!

His adventures take him to far-away lands, where not everything is what it seems! With the help from his travel companion (a princess in training!) and the participation of YOU the audience, the young prince discovers that he is more than equal to the tasks presented to him!

Note: This play replaces the previously announced title in this slot, A Tale of Two Dragons.
