Michael Frayns play is among the funniest, most original and most brilliantly
constructed farces in any language Sunday Times, UK
Premiering in London in 1982, Noises Off is actually two plays for the price of one. Its a play within a play the characters are performing the traditional British farce entitled Nothing On, but we are also party to the real-life farce that develops backstage during the shows final rehearsal and subsequent disastrous tour.
This uproarious comedy follows the on and off stage antics of an inept acting troupe as they stumble from bumbling dress rehearsal to disastrous closing night. Everything that can go wrong does, as actors desperately try to hang on to their lines, their performances and the furniture. Add several slippery plates of sardines and a slew of slamming doors, and you have the most sidesplitting backstage comedy ever written.
This comedy is bound to thill audiences and leave them rolling in the aisles.
Stars Steven Brandon, Tanya Goldberg, Matthew Foster, Heather Brandon, Adam Gelin, Tanya Stein and others!

At times sad, but frequently witty, this show could just as easily be titled " G & S - all the best bits"
Written & Directed by Donna and Andrew Foote this show presents all the joy and colour expected of a full Gilbert & Sullivan production
