Unnecessary Farce

Unnecessary Farce

May 23rd, 2019
Milwaukee Chamber Theatre

A perfect summertime romp! Featuring Jonathan Gillard Daly, Tim Higgins, Rick Pendzich, Amber Smith, Jenny Wanasek, Ben Yela, Rachael Zientek. Undercover cops Eric and Billie have one job to do: Sit in their Sheboygan motel room and monitor the meeting in the room next door, where an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant. Simple. Easy. And yet a number of troubling questions need answering. Who’s in which room? Who’s hired an incomprehensible Scottish hit man? Who’s really taken the money? And why does the accountant keep taking off her clothes? Paul Slade Smith’s truly criminal comic sensation riotously re-invents the door-slamming farce for the digital age. It’s an absolutely necessary summertime treat! Tickets range from $15-$40.
