Easily considered the funniest farce ever written, this classic comedy follows a troupe of assiduous actors as they blunder from a disastrous dress rehearsal to complete pandemonium when they embark on an ill-fated tour.

With screwball shenanigans, mounting mayhem, slamming doors, and even flying sardines, this rip-roaring romp is the perfect outing for anyone ready to leave reality behind and indulge in the life-affirming and mood-altering benefits of good, old-fashioned belly laughs. This multiple Tony Award-nominated gem of a play will leave audiences in stitches.
