BEDROOM FARCE received five Tony Award nominations, including Best Play, during its 1979 Broadway run. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

BEDROOM FARCE takes place over the course of one intense Saturday evening. In three separate bedrooms, the roles and relationships of four couples are laid bare, complete with squabbles, bothers, a few bruises, and a touching epiphany.
