This hilarious, clever comedy romp will have audiences roaring with laughter. An ingenious play-within-a-play, Noises Off follows the onstage and off stage exploits of a company of actors appearing in a dreadful bedroom farce called Nothing On, complete with mistaken identities, infidelities, scantily clad ladies and slamming doors. During the play's final rehearsal and tour, as the characters make their exits from Nothing On, they find themselves in a backstage world that is quickly falling apart. In the end, the two worlds collide into one scandalously silly, fabulously funny nervous breakdown. This play won both the Olivier Award and the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy.
