* IfItsYouItsOK: Patrick, for Sarah, although for Joanne Kelly, anyone'd switch their sexuality. The actors would be loath to admit it, but this subplot is a PlotParallel for Darren's [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible incomprehensible]] gender-exploration production!

* OrphanedPunchline / NoodleIncident: Scenes are often opened at the end of what have clearly been long true-from-life accounts, just in time for the punchline. Breedlove is a [[RunningGag walking example]]; he is introduced finishing a story he's telling to a crowd, at the conclusion of which a fellow actor returns "with a fish," which he throws at a woman in the audience. Later a scene cuts to him saying, "I thought ThePope was a pretty good sport about it."

* ReferenceOverdosed: Given that the majority of the cast are in-universe Shakespearean actors putting on Shakespeare's plays ''and'' the show itself reflects those plays in its characters, arcs, and themes, this is inevitable.

to:

* ReferenceOverdosed: Given that the majority of the cast are in-universe Shakespearean actors putting on Shakespeare's plays ''and'' the show itself reflects those plays in its characters, arcs, and themes, this is inevitable. While the actual plays performed are among Shakespeare's most famous, the characters are not afraid to reference his more obscure works. (Season 1 ends with a quote from ''Theatre/KingJohn''; season 2, with a quote from ''Theatre/RichardII''.)



* TheScottishTrope: Season 2.

to:

* TheScottishTrope: Season 2.2 is about a production of ''Macbeth'', so naturally this comes up. Oliver refers to Macbeth as "the Scotsman" until Geoffrey starts making fun of him for it. The opening credits are all about how the role is cursed, and call him "Mackers."

** Henry's backstage reaction to Geoffrey's use of EnforcedMethodActing on him.

to:

** Henry's backstage reaction to Geoffrey's use of EnforcedMethodActing on him.[[invoked]]


Added DiffLines:

* InsultBackfire: Geoffrey and Henry disagree fundamentally on the interpretation of ''Macbeth''. Geoffrey thinks it's necessary to showcase Macbeth's vulnerability in order to humanize him; Henry thinks Macbeth should remain in control of himself at all times (or, more precisely, Henry is the kind of actor who wants to be in control of his own performance at all times, and that informs the way he plays Macbeth). As a result of this conflict, Geoffrey pulls Henry out one night and puts in his understudy. Geoffrey thinks this is a great success. Henry, well...
-->'''Henry''': I saw a man stuttering and sweating his way through ''Macbeth''. Now, if that was your desired effect, well, I'd say you succeeded admirably.\\
'''Geoffrey''': ''(proudly)'' Yes.

-->'''Geoffrey''': Okay look, I'm not saying that evil isn't present in the play. What I'm asking is, are the events of the play driven by evil, '''or''' is it that the characters themselves are just, simply evil from the get-go?
-->'''Oliver''': Yes.
-->'''Geoffrey''': Which!?
