Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce!
Have you ever wondered what it’s like backstage during the performance of a play? Sometimes, its funnier behind the scenes than on the stage.
As the slapstick comedy “Nothing On” is touring the county theatre circuit in England in the 1960s, the audience is treated to the dramas, mishaps and interpersonal relationships that occur between the cast as they struggle to rehearse, perform and tour the play.
With a philandering director in a love triangle, an aging star and her toy boy and an elderly alcoholic actor in the mix chaos is sure to ensue!
The play progresses from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and — of course — flying sardines!
