"Noises Off" runs June 10-26 at Theatre in the Park

Michael Frayn’s Zany Backstage Comedy “Noises Off” Is Performed at a Gallop with Lots of Slapstick

“Noises Off” is a hysterical comedy-within-a-comedy that captures a touring theater troupe’s production of a British sex farce in three stages: a dragging dress rehearsal, the boisterous opening performance, and an unbelievable performance toward the end of the run. Each performance is portrayed from behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance.
