“Unnecessary Farce” is the tale of a police sting gone awry after a bumbling mayor, a pair of lusty civil servants and an incomprehensible Scottish hit man are thrown together.

“I guarantee this will be the funniest play you see this year,” said Charles R. Miller, Theatre program coordinator and Liberal Arts professor.

“Unnecessary Farce” is one of the events that make up The Arts at Pellissippi State. The series brings to the community cultural activities ranging from music and theatre to international celebrations, lectures, and the fine arts.
