Synopsis: Fast paced and witty, The Great Pandemonium is a play that describes what actors, directors and stage crews go through on a daily basis when preparing to perform a play. The play in question is Richard III, and now, the night before it opens, the cast and crew are having to run what is laughingly known as a tech rehearsal. Already on edge, Mr. Nusthorp has to contend with a militant assistant director, several missing actors, and a prop lady who quits every chance she gets. Lights go up and down, actors fall off platforms and then the principal shows up, proclaiming, "Pretend I'm not here," only to interrupt every three minutes, wondering why they aren't doing Grease. It’s all a bit more than Mr. Nusthorp can take! Is it any wonder he refers to it as “The Great Pandemonium”?
