Written by English playwright Michael Frayne, Noises Off is called the funniest farce ever written and presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a theatre flop called "Nothing's On." On and offstage intrigue and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classical comedy.
"The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium." - The New York Times
"Bumper car brilliance [...] If laughter is indeed the best medicine, Noises Off is worth its weight in Cipro." - New York Daily News
