NOISES OFF

A Farcical Comedy by Michael Frayn

Performances on Friday/Saturdays at 7PM & Sundays 2 PM CST

Noises Off provides a glimpse into the world of theatre. The audience will witness both the rehearsal process and what goes on behind the scenes once the curtain is raised. The play opens the night before the first performance and the cast are hopelessly unready. Baffled by entrances and exits, missed cues, missed lines, and bothersome props, including several plates of sardines, Lloyd, the director, is beyond frustrated. Seen from backstage, Act 2 provides a view of the dysfunctional relationships between the cast. Romantic rivalries, lovers’ tiffs and personal quarrels lead to offstage shenanigans, onstage bedlam and the occasional attack with a fire axe. Act 3 occurs during the play’s last run where relationships between the cast have frayed considerably, the set is breaking down and props are winding up in the wrong hands, on the floor, and in the way. While the actors remain determined to cover up the mounting chaos, it’s not long before the plot and script are seemingly abandoned entirely in this hilarious comedy.
