A major new production of Michael Frayn’s fantastic comic romp is set to raise The REP’s roof with laughter this Spring.
This multi award-winning classic British comedy has been enjoyed by millions since it premiered in 1982. Offering two plays for the price of one, Noises Off promises one of the funniest nights you’ll spend at the theatre!
On the eve before the opening of the traditional farce, Nothing On, a real life farce develops backstage during the final rehearsal which continues throughout the show’s disastrous tour. Whilst the riotous fun onstage is happening, equally explosive events begin offstage.
The actors make their exits from Nothing On, only to find themselves making entrances into the farcical goings-on backstage, and back again.
Amid such confusions, will they ever make it to the end of the show?
Noises Off is directed by Olivier Award nominee Ian Talbot, and has an all star cast including Brigit Forsyth, well known for her role as Thelma in the classic BBC comedy Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads and most recently in the West End production of Calendar Girls.
