Lancaster City

Noises Off - With breakneck pace and a rich gallery of characters, Michael Frayn's brilliantly witty farce follows the on- and off-stage antics of a touring company as they stumble from dress rehearsal to disastrous last night of the comedy, Nothing On. Everything that can go wrong does, as the cast members desperately try to maintain composure sabotaging their fellow actors... resulting in a terrifying descent into chaos. Missed cues, broken backstage romances, and a very slippery plate of sardines all form part of this riotous, madcap comedy that will get everyone caught in the act.

The New York Times critic Frank Rich called it "the funniest play written in my lifetime."
