Lent Week 7
A group of blundering actors are about to embark on a touring production of 'Nothing On' - a classic British farce. But on the night before the first performance, the play is far from ready to perform. Fluffed lines, misplaced sardines and the tension of backstage romances all contribute to the uproarious troubles of the production team. As the tour continues, events behind the scenes spiral out of control, and the predicament of the actors and crew becomes even more farcical than the play they are performing.
'Noises Off' firmly established Michael Frayn's position as an exceptional and perceptive dramatist, with its first production winning both the Evening Standard and the Olivier Award for Best Comedy of the Year. One of the truly great comedies of recent times, this frenzied farce is an unmissable piece of theatre from one of Britain's finest and most popular playwrights.
