BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI – St. Dunstan’s Theatre is proud to present its upcoming production of the hilarious comedy, Unnecessary Farce. This show is sure to have the audience in stitches with its fast-paced dialogue and witty one-liners.
Unnecessary Farce is a hilarious comedy that tells the story of two hapless cops hoping to crack their first big case: busting their Mayor for embezzlement.
