Reviewed by Nicholas Linnehan The Cider Mill Playhouse's production of "Unnecessary Farce" is anything but unnecessary. It's a riot! Under Penny Powell's capable direction, the cast shines. This play is classic farce, full of awkward situations, sexual innuendo and play on words. The ensemble members show their talent as they tackle all of these aspects with great ease. As an actor, I know that this is no easy feat and requires a lot of diligence and skill.
