Called ‘the funniest farce ever written’, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. The audience is treated to a hilarious behind-the-scenes peek at the acting troupe rehearsing and performing Nothing On. Despite nerves, dropped lines and technical difficulties, they make it through rehearsal and open the show. As time goes by, things deteriorate until pandemonium ensues and axe-wielding co-stars, drunken cast members and misplaced sardines take centre stage during a disaster of a performance that threatens to jinx the old saying, ‘The show must go on’.
Noises Off will be performed at 16th Ave Theatre from November 22 to December 7.
