Romper room: Un­nec­es­sary Farce

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Pant­ing, paw­ing, ly­ing, and mur­der-by-bag­pipe take cen­ter stage in Un­nec­es­sary Farce, a fast-paced and light­hearted door-slam­ming sex romp by Paul Slade Smith, open­ing at the Santa Fe Play­house (142 E. De Var­gas St., 505-988-4262) on Fri­day, Feb, 24. Vaughn Irv­ing, the Play­house’s artis­tic di­rec­tor, helms this wacky pro­duc­tion that puts two ques­tion­ably com­pe­tent cops on stake­out in a mo­tel room to catch the mayor in a cor­rup­tion scheme. Is Mayor Meekly an em­bez­zler or a grin­ning doo­fus? Will Of­fi­cer Eric ever get up the guts to go all the way with Karen, the de­cep­tively pas­sion­ate ac­coun­tant? A series of silly and slightly im­plau­si­ble plot twists re­veals all. Ad­di­tional per­for­mances are Thurs­days, Fridays, and Satur­days at 7:30 p.m. and Sun­days at 2 p.m. through March 12. Tick­ets are $25 (with dis­counts avail­able); the pre-per­for­mance gala at 6:30 p.m. on Satur­day, Feb. 25, is $30. For tick­ets, visit www.santafe­play­house.org. — J.L.
