MillBrook Playhouse's UNNECESSARY FARCE Opens 7/1

Get ready to laugh as the MillBrook Playhouse presents Unnecessary Farce opening July 1 through July 16, 2016. Written by Paul Slade Smith, this hysterical comedy will have audiences laughing from start to finish!

Two cops, three crooks, eight doors....GO! An embezzling mayor is set to meet his accountant in a motel rooM. Little does he know that two inexperienced cops have set up a sting and are in the adjoining room hoping to catch the meeting on video. The plan would go off without a hitch if only one of the officers weren't having a secret affair; they could keep track of who's in what room; figure out how to work the surveillance equipment; and if they could keep the accountant from taking off her clothes! Throw in a bagpipe playing hit man, the mayor's nosey wife, a crooked security guard and you've got an operation for non-stop laughter!
Featuring: Samm Carroll as Karen Brown, Brett Epstein as Agent Frank, Matt Harris as Mayor Meekly, Dave Polgar as Todd, Lauren Riddle as Mary Meekly, Jeff Ronan as Eric, and Danielle White as Billie.
