Venue, Timing and Cost
One of the greatest British comedies ever written returns to The Playhouse following a sell-out and triumphant West End run.
Michael Frayn’s celebrated play serves up a riotous double bill, a play within a play. Hurtling along at breakneck speed, Noises Off follows the on and offstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On.
From the shambolic final rehearsals before opening night in Weston-super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-under-Lyne seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, before we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.
One of the UK’s favourite actresses, Liza Goddard’s extensive stage comedy credits include Life of Riley, Communicating Doors, Season’s Greetings and Relatively Speaking.
Paul Bradley is best known for playing Nigel Bates in EastEnders and Elliot Hope in Holby City.
Simon Shepherd’s many credits include Peak Practice and the West End productions of Posh, The Duck House, Rapture, Art and Hay Fever.
