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”
