“The appeal of Noises Off is enduring for all the ages.”
“Frayn’s chaotic farce as thrilling as ever”
“Michael Frayn’s farce hits giddy heights”
After a run at Lyric Hammersmith acclaimed by critics and audience alike, Michael Frayn’s classic backstage comedy Noises Off transfers to the Garrick Theatre to delight West End audiences with its masterclass of classic slapstick farce.
Noises Off follows the cast of the disastrous flop Nothing On, following the mishaps and fumbles both on and off stage as the show goes from rehearsal to performance. Anything that can go wrong does, in this hilarious, high-energy farce that will have you rolling in the aisles.
Reprising their roles from the Lyric production, Meera Syal (The Kumars), Daniel Rigby (One Man, Two Guvnors), Lloyd Owen (The York Realist) and Simon Rouse (The Full Monty) will all be part of the Garrick cast.
Writer Michael Frayn has had an illustrious career spaning plays, novels and film, with Noises Off having won him the 1982 Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
Noises Off is directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall, All My Sons), with design from Max Jones and lighting by Amy Mae.
A classic comedy hit that any fans of Mischief Theatre Company will love, Noises Off is a revival of a legendary comedy that is not to be missed.
