"Unnecessary Farce" photos
Weathervane Playhouse in Akron, Ohio, presents Paul Slade Smith's hilarious comedy "Unnecessary Farce" -- live on stage from April 23 to May 10, 2015. The production is directed by Marc Moritz.

ABOUT THE PLAY

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!
