There Is Some Necessary Roughness In Drayton Entertainment’s Unnecessary Farce

Drayton Entertainment has always been known for their musical productions, but over the past few years they have become the go to company for their farce comedies as well.  With the successful productions of It Runs In The Family and Run For Your Wife , this late summer stage show of Unnecessary Farce is sure to be a hit especially with the inclusion of a hitman.

What To Expect At Unnecessary Farce

The stage is set in an adjoining motel room set up for an undercover police operation.  The two officers involved are wanting their sting to help them move up the rankings of the police force, and they won’t let their inexperience stop them.  The other cast of characters include the local mayor, his wife, his security guard, a newly appointed accountant and a legendary hitman.  Together this ensemble learns about a crime ring which is has been embezzling funds from the local government and using city hall as the means to launder the cash.  While this sounds like the plot to a serious crime story, this show will have you laughing out loud as you watch the actors stumble and bumble their way through the “almost” professional investigation.  There are one-liners, misinterpretations and some necessary roughness throughout Unnecessary Farce.  We think it would be a good choice to take in Unnecessary Farce on your next Parents’ Night Out.
Unnecessary Farce is playing right now at The Dunfield Theatre in Cambridge Ontario.
Tickets are $44 for Adults and $26 for Youth under 20 years of age. Tickets for groups of 20 or more are $36. HST is applicable to all ticket prices. Tickets may be purchased online at, in person at any Drayton Entertainment Box Office, or by calling toll free 1-855-DRAYTON (372-9866).
