|Description:||In Michael Frayna’s hilarious backstage, onstage, all-the-world’s-a-stage farce, “Noises Off”, we follow a 4th rate touring company from the disastrous final dress of the bedroom farce “Nothing On” through its run watching as the farce onstage slowly falls prey to the personal affairs of the company off stage.
A brainy, funny portrait of of a slowly disintegrating stage production..reminds us that beneath the order we seek to impose on our own daily lives lurks a terrifying abyss.” Michael Billington.
“The funniest play written in my lifetime”. -Frank Rich, New York Times.
If you need to laugh, “Noises Off”, is for you.”
“By far the craziest comedy ever to hit the stage a farce by which all others must now be measured.”
