Noises Off transfers to Phoenix Theatre

Careening along at breakneck speeds, Noises Off shows the on and offstage antics of a touring theatre company. We watch as they stumble their way through mounting their fictional farce, Nothing On, from the chaotic final rehearsals before their opening night in Weston-Super-Mare, to a completely calamitous matinee in Ashton-Under-Lyme (which we see entirely, and uproariously silently, from backstage). We even get to share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.

This classic British comedy takes us behind the scenes and backstage with a company of actors as they struggle to prepare for and then finish a run of their newest show. We get to watch from different angles and iterations as our actors’ relationships turn sour behind the scenes and just how much that seeps out into the show taking place on the stage. Noises Off is known for its technical complexity and split-second timing. An immediate hit when it premiered, Noises Off quickly transferred to the West End’s Savoy Theatre where it would go on to run for five years.

The show had multiple Tony award-nominated runs on Broadway and numerous London revivals including productions at the Piccadilly Theatre in the West End, The National Theatre, and London’s Old Vic. With its unique peek behind the curtain at life in the world theatre the show became a favourite of professional and amateur companies around the world. It would go on to be made into a 1992 film with a star-studded cast including Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Christopher Reeve, John Ritter, and Nicollette Sheridan.
