Farce scripts for stage



‘In theatre, a farce is a comedy that aims at entertaining the audience through situations that are highly exaggerated, extravagant, and thus improbable. Farces are often highly incomprehensible plot-wise (due to the many plot twists and random events that occur), but viewers are encouraged not to try to follow the plot in order to avoid becoming confused and overwhelmed.  A farce is also characterized by physical humour, the use of deliberate absurdity or nonsense, and broadly stylized performances. A farce is also often set in one particular location, where all events occur.’  – adapted from wikipedia.org
