    Based on several disastrous theatrical experiences, this play examines the process of putting on a show that is less than good. We go from the audition—where the director is more worried about roast beef than paying attention to the warm-up exercise, and the neurotic cast pretends to be bacon—to rehearsals—where a passive-aggressive stage manager gives everyone grief. This bad play within a play won't win any awards, but will keep audiences in stitches. Learn More
