Synopsis

Noises Off is a theatrical farce by English playwright Michael Frayn, a play-within-a-play which gets progressively more chaotic as it unfolds. Frenetic and unstable actors, a volatile director, and an overworked and overly emotional stage crew lead to the collapse of the tacky sex comedy they’re putting on entitled Nothing On — a single-set farce in which lovers frolic, doors slam, clothes are tossed away, and embarrassing hi-jinks ensue (including many, many sardines).

The three acts of "Noises Off " expose different phases of the disastrous show, "Nothing On":

  • Act One: On stage during dress rehearsal.

  • Act Two: Backstage during a matinee performance.

  • Act Three: On stage during a delightfully ruined performance.
