Wednesday 20th April 2016

Noises Off opened to packed houses last week and received rave reviews from press and audiences alike! We’ve gathered all the reactions here so you can read about just how great the show is.

“One delicious disaster” ★★★★

In The Times review, Dominic Maxwell says, “if there is a finer stage comedy than Michael Frayn’s farce about the staging of a farce, I’ve yet to see it.”

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

In his review for The Guardian Alfred Hickling also writes that, “the attempts of Carla Mendonça’s harassed housekeeper to keep track of her props is a particular delight.”

Devilishly entertaining… An absolute joy to watch” ★★★★★

East Midlands Theatre “highly recommend this show” and is “one of the best evenings” they’ve enjoyed at Nottingham Playhouse so far.

“Incredibly funny”

The Stage says “The choreography of the second act, which plays out like a silent movie, is beautifully done… resulting in some of the biggest laughs of the production.”

“A deeply entertaining and satisfying modern classic.”

Nottingham Post comments that “it’s a brilliantly written farce within a farce – trousers drop in both – with some wonderful dialogue.”

“An excellent evening out.” ★★★★

Reviews Hub also writes that the production has “superb comic timing” and “the nine-strong cast is collectively excellent.”

“One long laugh and deserves all the accolades it gets”

British Theatre Guide gives high praise to the cast: “Elkington gives a glorious performance… Robin Bowerman excels as Selsdon Mowbray… Ritu Arya sparkles as Poppy Norton-Taylor.”

“A dizzying, hilarious evening”

Exeunt Magazine says “Blanche McIntyre’s Nottingham Playhouse debut of an expertly choreographed production makes excellent use of Robert Innes Hopkins’s labyrinthine set.”

“A night of escapism… uncontrollable laughter from the audience”

Left Lion writes that “the cast all nail their roles… there are lengthy ensemble sequences of slapstick which are almost balletic in timing and grace.”

“One of the Nottingham Playhouse’s finest” 10/10

Impact Magazine also says “it is impossible to pick out a favourite scene from the numerous outstanding moments in this production.”

But don’t just take their word for it, here’s what you’ve been saying…
