Why See Noises Off ?
40 farcical years of Noises Off
Celebrate 40 years of Michael Frayn's riotous backstage comedy as this glorious production from Bath's Theatre Royal sweeps into the West End in January 2023, following a glowing tour. Starring Felicity Kendal, Jonathan Coy, and Alexander Hanson, this new iteration of Frayn's love letter to the theatre is directed by Linsay Posner. A golden classic of British comedy, enjoy a whirlwind of banter, face and theatrical chaos as a troupe of actors shamble through the final rehearsals of the fictional play 'Nothing On', before opening night in Weston-Super-Mare.
First performed in 1982, the iconic, Olivier Award-winning production is the ultimate tribute to the unpredictability of the theatre. The story starts mere hours before the opening of an adult comedy romp called 'Nothing On' while a touring company hurriedly runs through a final dress rehearsal. The cast is loveable but entirely inept, and even though they can't remember their lines, entrances, and exits, you can't help but root for them as they attempt to put on a shambles of a show.
Opening night: 27 September 2023
You may be required to wear a mask during this performance. Please contact the venue directly for more information.
