After a triumphant run in the West End earlier this year, Felicity Kendal, Jonathan Coy and Alexander Hanson return in one of the greatest comedies ever written, Noises Off.
Michael Frayn’s celebrated play serves up a riotous double bill – a play within a play.
Hurtling along at breakneck speed, Noises Off follows the on and offstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On. From the shambolic final rehearsals before the opening night in Weston-Super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-Under-Lyme seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.
TrÃ¨s belle performance. Beaucoup de rythme.

Having first seen this back in the 80s, I enjoyed it every bit as much this time. Itâ€™s a great script that is performed brilliantly!
