“One delicious disaster” ★★★★

The Times

“The punch-ups and pratfalls are peerlessly executed” ★★★★

The Guardian

Riotous, raucous, hilarious, tears-rolling down-the-face, can’t-breathe-it’s-so-funny, ridiculous, perfectly glorious comedy bliss.

Join us for Michael Frayn’s legendary multi-award-winning comedy ‘Noises Off’ and take a trip behind the scenes as everything that could possibly go wrong…does.

As a touring troupe desperately try to hold their shambolic production of ‘Nothing On’ together and with under 24 hours to go until curtain-up, it’s downhill all the way through their dress rehearsal as backstage antics, forgotten lines, not-so-secret romances, hilarious malfunctions and a tin of sardines threaten to result in a disastrous first performance.

Tony, Emmy, Critics’ Circle, twice Olivier and six times Evening Standard Award-winning writer Michael Frayn’s plays include Donkey’s Years, Alarms and Excursions, and Democracy and Copenhagen. Noises Off was awarded both the Olivier and Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy when it was first presented in 1982.

“Beautifully done and incredibly funny”
