In a desperate attempt to save their bankrupt “School for Unusual Children”, an inexperienced PTA group valiantly mounts an ambitious benefit play, written by a has been Broadway director. His near hysterical direction and the group’s questionable talent turn the production into a shambles. The scenes shift back and forth from the real tribulations of the performers to the play they are “performing”, and it is hard to tell which is sillier. This is fast and furious theatrical fun of the first order, with us watching the fun from the “back” of the stage! This fast moving slapstick farce is from the creators of Bullshot Crummond and El Grande de Coca Cola!
