UNNECESSARY FARCE is an award-winning stage comedy by Paul Slade Smith which combines all the hallmarks of classic farce with a contemporary American plot: the police procedural. When two rookie cops trail a crooked politician to a motel, they’re not only fighting crime, they’re also battling mistaken identities, thwarted lovers, unintentional innuendo, conversations that seem to be about one thing but are actually about something else entirely, and an inordinate number of slamming doors.  Runs a fast-paced 2 hours including intermission.
