Why See Noises Off?

Michael Frayn's irresistable farce!

From a disastrous dress rehearsal where the cast fumbles their entrances and exits, to bothersome props and a final performance of missed cues and forgotten lines, Noises Off is a show-within-a-show that explores explosive personal relationships that lead to offstage shenanigans and onstage chaos.

A hopeless troupe of British actors are set to star in a production 'Nothing On', a rather desperate sex farce that will be touring small seaside towns in the UK. From the disastrous rehearsal to the equally disastrous final performance, nothing quite goes right for the amateur thespians. The set is falling apart, props keep popping up in the wrong place and everyone keeps falling over. Added to this are the number of extramarital affairs going on backstage and petty grievances which spring up between the players. As the final curtain rises, many of the actors are more concerned with laying traps for their despised colleagues than remembering their lines.
