Looking for more examples of a plot. Well, more of a structure really. The one from Noises Off, where you are shown how the story should go, then they go through it again, only this time everything goes wrong. Bonus points if they go through it a third time, and it absolutely explodes.

An episode of Are You Being Served fits nicely (The Night Club
). The one where they are filming a commercial for a club in the store. They go over how it should look, have an exasperating time filming it, then get horrified by the final result. There is an episode of Fraiser (Ham Radio
) where they rehearse a murder mystery radio play that works the same way. Any more, Hivemind?
Note: Not looking for heist movies where they show the plan, then execution. I'm looking for a specific version of play-within-a-play.
