“Wrote a play about weather, with 100 actors as clouds. It was overcast”

"Overcast” weather is when the sky is covered with clouds. An “over-cast” play has too many actors. There have been many “overcast” puns. “I had an audition for a play the other day, they were casting 8 people to be clouds for it. 9 showed up, It was overcast” was posted on Twitter on January 17, 2014. “Today’s weather is like a play with too many actors.  It’s overcast” was posted on Twitter on March 8, 2015.

“@ShitJokes I wrote a play where 5 people were dressed as grey clouds. But on opening night 6 people turned up.....It was overcast” was posted on Twitter by Tony Kay on December 18, 2015. “Wrote a play about weather, we had 5 actors dressed as clouds for the rehearsal.

Overcast is a description of the weather but it sounds like a description of a play with 6 understudies. “We overcast this thing.”
