Written by Michael Frayn
Directed by Susi Damilano
Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off is the most dexterously realized comedy about putting on a comedy. A rollicking backstage farce about a second-rate theatrical troupe, the hilarity combines slapstick, a British sex comedy, and non-stop humor from a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing On. Doors slamming, on- and off-stage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this uproarious and classically comic play.
