A small-time theatrical troupe are travelling with the 'Scoubidou' tour through the French provinces. The producer of the farce, Shapiron, however, is in debt. The long-suffering leading lady, Carla, insists that the show must go on and refuses to pretend illness while the producer collects a substantial insurance payout. A trio of delapidated old actors protect Carla from Shapiron while the onstage chaos becomes so wild that the farce becomes an unexpected success and goes on tour abroad.
