Noises Off

Noises Off by Michael Frayn

Performed: 12th - 16th May 2015
Director:  Adrian Edgar

Noises Off is a play within a play. It is about an ambitious director and his troupe of mediocre actors. The cast and crew are putting together a silly sex comedy titled, ‘Nothing On’ - a single-set farce in which lovers frolic, doors slam, clothes are tossed away, and embarrassing high jinks ensue.

The three acts of Noises Off expose different phases of the disastrous show, ‘Nothing On’ during its much anticipated national tour:

Act One:

On stage during the dress rehearsal at the Grand Theatre, Weston-Super-Mare. 

Act Two:

A month later: Backstage during a matinee performance at the Theatre Royal, Goole. 

Act Three

Two months later: On stage during a delightfully ruined performance at the Municipal Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees.
