Roundabout presents this farcical play-within-a-play, complete with plates of sardines, semi-dressed ingenues, and slamming doors aplenty. More…
'Noises Off' is a first-rate comedy about a second-rate theatre company staging a third-rate play. The opening night performance of the farce 'Nothing On' is just hours away, and as the cast stumbles through their final dress rehearsal, things couldn't be going any worse. With lines being forgotten, love triangles unraveling and sardines flying everywhere, it’s complete pandemonium before they reach intermission. Can the cast pull their act together on the stage even if they can't behind the scenes?
