Called "the funniest farce ever written," "Noises Off" is not one play but two. A company of actors rehearsing a traditional farce called "Nothing On," and the backstage drama that develops during the "Nothing On" final rehearsal and tour. The two begin to interlock as the characters make their exits from "Nothing On," only to find themselves making entrances into the even worse nightmare going on backstage. In the end, at the disastrous final performance, the two plots can be kept separate no longer and coalesce into a single collective nervous breakdown.
The play is written by Michael Frayn and directed by Wendy King. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased by phone at 660.562.1321 or at the box office up to one hour before the show.
