Mathew Horne & Felicity Kendal star in the West End revival of Michael Frayn’s play within a play.
Chaos ensues during rehearsal for a new comedy titled 'Nothing On'. As the inept actors struggle with their own personal issues and growing animosity, their performance becomes a disastrous blend of missed cues, backstage romances, and physical mishaps. The backstage antics mirror the on-stage disasters, all of which test the cast's patience and professionalism...
After a run at the Phoenix Theatre earlier this year, 'Noises Off' returns to the West End with 'Gavin and Stacey' star Mathew Horne, Tamsin Outhwaite, Felicity Kendal, Jonathan Coy, and Alexander Hanson.
“Lindasy Posner’s production demonstrates just how magnificent Frayn’s play actually is, the second act, in particular, demonstrates the intense choreography required to pull off any theatrical production, and that couldn’t be truer for Noises Off. It is extremely clever and wildly funny, and even forty years on remains a masterclass in farce.”
“Thank heavens for Michael Frayn and his restoratively silly play 'Noises Off,' which helps combat the winter blues with its Saharan-strength warmth and battles the doom and gloom of our age with a kind of inverted logic: yes, we’re in a mess but at least we lead the world in organised theatrical chaos.”
