Farce |färs| a comic dramatic work using buffoonery and horseplay and typically including crude characterization and ludicrously improbable situations.

This quirky gem explores the imaginary world of the Bellman and his circadian escapades. Part slapstick, part spiritus, the music flaunts a relentless and animated fantasy worthy of a nod (or even a wink) from the likes of Terry Gilliam or Carl Stalling.
