Join us for Michael Frayn’s ingenious, multi-award-winning comedy Noises Off and take a trip behind the scenes as everything that could possibly go wrong, goes wrong. A 1980s English theatrical touring troupe desperately tries to hold its middling sex comedy ‘Nothing On’ together. With less than a few hours to go until curtain-up, it’s all downhill as backstage antics, forgotten lines, not-so-secret romances, hilarious malfunctions, and a plate of sardines all result in a disastrous production…and riotous, raucous, hilarious, ridiculous, glorious comedic bliss.
Tony, Emmy, Critics’ Circle, and six times London Evening Standard Award-winning writer Michael Frayn’s plays include Donkey’s Years, Alarms and Excursions, Democracy, and Copenhagen. Noises Off was awarded the British Olivier and Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy when first presented in 1982.
