* ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops:'' [[Series/AvatarTheLastAirbender Sokka]] has found that no matter what implausible thing happens, he's been able to pass it off as simply the Ember Island Players rehearsing for a play. Even when this involves a blind, bright orange pony in a Stetson earthbending in broad daylight.

'''Agent K:''' Beats you? ''[Starts shaking Frank around]''\\
'''Frank:''' ''[Starts yelping]''\\

* ''Film/TheLeagueOfGentlemen''. The criminals use this excuse when some CampGay actors (including a young Creator/OliverReed) interrupt their planning session for TheCaper. In this case the usual BlatantLies is avoided, as the trope had clearly been prepared in advance.

* Played with in ''Series/TheWildWildWest'' episode "The Night of the Turncoat." A public disturbance involving the main characters is explained away by one of them as a scene from a play which their "troupe" has come to perform in the town. While technically untrue, in actual fact the whole thing ''was'' staged by the main characters as part of a larger infiltration plot.

* During a task in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'', Niko has the job description described to him, in a roundabout, not really implicating way, in a car that his employer's other agent (the man explaining the job) thinks may have listening devices in it. Niko then bluntly sums up the assignment to be sure he understood, leading his co-worker to quickly state, for the benefit of anyone listening, that he does not really know Niko, and that they are rehearsing for a night school drama class they attend together.

** Inverted in one episode where Homer was heard shouting, "I'm going to kill you" in an angry tone, and Marge thought he had snapped. It turned out that Homer and Bart are rehearsing for a play, and Homer was just reading the play's title, ''I'm Going To Kill You'', aloud.

* Invoked near on word for word in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Caretaker" when Clara is caught stopping an alien attack on the school where she teaches. Her co-worker/boyfriend is ''not'' impressed and [[GenreSavvy immediately figures out]] that both the thing she's fighting and Clara's unfriendly co-conspirator are aliens, hilariously assuming that she is one as well.

Ultimately it's played for drama that Clara would rather make up a completely obvious lie than try to explain what's really going on to her boyfriend, who would probably believe the truth.
