Noises Off  | Open: 02/15/13 Close: 02/24/13
Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and backstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. 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 frollic, doors slam, clothes are tossed away, and embarrassing hi-jinks ensue.

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.

If you have never experienced theater as an actor or a crew member, then perhaps Noises Off is simply an entertaining show with a lot of laughs. However, for those of us who "tread the boards," Michael Frayn's Noises Off might very well be the funniest play ever written.
