Nov. 1 – Nov. 18, 2018
by Michael Frayn
A fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This ridiculously chaotic play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: the flubbed lines and missed cues of the final Dress Rehearsal, and the mounting frictions set into motion on Opening Night – all leading to a hilariously disastrous Closing Performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and -- of course -- flying sardines!
