Two people can be seen from the waist down. One of the people has their trousers round their ankles and the other is wearing fishnets and heels. Various items are dotted around in a chaotic manner, including roses, alcohol, fish, and a cactus.

Noises Off

Direct from the West End

As finely worked as a Swiss watch and as funny as the human condition permits”
★★★★★ The Times

One of the greatest British comedies ever written visits The Rep, direct from a triumphant West End season.

Michael Frayn’s celebrated play serves up a riotous double bill, a play within a play.

The ultimate comedy of theatrical chaos and confusion”
★★★★★ Sunday Express

Hurtling along at breakneck speed, Noises Off follows the on and offstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On.

From the shambolic final rehearsals before opening night in Weston-super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-under-Lyne seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, before we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.

Lindsay Posner’s miraculously choreographed revival is proof that Noises Off has lost none of its power to reduce adults to hysterical, helpless wrecks”
★★★★★ Mail on Sunday
