As a touring troupe desperately try to hold their shambolic production of ‘Nothing On’ together, and with under 24 hours to go before curtain-up, it’s downhill all the way through their dress rehearsal.
Backstage antics, forgotten lines, not-so secret romances, hilarious malfunctions and a tin of sardines threaten to result in a disastrous first performance.
Noises Off was awarded both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Comedy when it was first presented.
Director, Blanche McIntyre said: “Noises Off is the greatest farce ever written and one of the great classics of modern theatre.
“I couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to direct it - it’s something I’ve wanted to do for years.
“I’m thrilled to be working on it with the brilliant and daring producing theatres of Nottingham Playhouse, Northern Stage, and Nuffield Southampton.
“It’s a privilege to take this play to their different audiences.”
See the riotous, raucous and hilarious production at Nottingham Playhouse until April 30.
After it’s run at the Playhouse the show will go on to be performed at Northern Stage, Newcastle and Nuffield Theatre, Southampton.
