Noises Off

Noises Off

The funniest play ever. Period. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and a plate of sardines all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. Playwright Michael Frayn created Noises Off as a love letter and an inside joke to those of us familiar with the thrilling and unpredictable nature of the stage. A “play within a play,” it is about an ambitious director and his troupe of mediocre actors who dream of the perfect hit comedy. The cast and crew are putting together a silly sex comedy titled, Nothing On – a single-set farce in which lovers frolic, doors slam, clothes are tossed away, and embarrassing hi-jinks ensue.

Act One introduces us to the “play within a play” premise during dress rehearsal. Act Two develops the plot several weeks later backstage during a matinee performance. Act Three completes the adventure a number of weeks later on stage during the delightfully ruined performance.

“The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium.” – The New York Times.
