"Tight, quick, zingy with one-liners and applause-worthy scenes, Michael Hollinger’s Red Herring, now at Act II Playhouse in Ambler through Nov. 19, is a classic – and classical – fast-talking comedy. At Act II, it is getting an ideal airing, with six crack comic actors, deft timing, sure-handed direction by David Bradley, and well-crafted silliness that makes you laugh a lot." -Philadelphia Inquirer [READ MORE]

Running time: Approximately two hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission.

Contains Gunshots, Herbal Cigarettes, and Adult Content
