June-July 2022 - LET US ENTERTAIN YOU - Unnecessary Farce


doors. Go. In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there is some confusion as to who is in which room, being videotaped, taking the money, hiring the hitman, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. An evening of hysterical laughter!

Written by Paul Slade Smith, an actor and playwright living in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, actress Erin Noel Grennan, Unnecessary Farce is a winner of fifteen regional theater awards and has garnered over 275 productions worldwide.

Nancy Sellin directs an outstanding cast, many familiar to The Adobe audiences – Madelon Brown, Lewis Hauser, Miles Hughes, Sarah Kesselring, Antonio Trigo III, Lianne Walk, and Eric John Werner.

To quote Nancy, “As a director, I’m always looking for something that goes above and beyond - Unnecessary Farce does just that! This play made me laugh out loud all the way through. The characters are endearingly ridiculous, and their interactions are hysterical. I don’t know about anybody else, but I NEED to laugh, especially these days. The play’s most redeeming quality is that it takes me out of myself and gets me involved in the fantastical world of farce, and THAT, makes me happy!”

Unnecessary Farce runs from June 1st -July 3rd, 2022, Fridays and Saturdays at 7.30 pm, Sundays at 2:00 pm, and Pay What You Will Thursday, June 30th at 7.30 pm. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.adobetheater.org.
