Considered by many to be the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off reveals the hilarious backstage antics and drama of a group of small-town actors attempting to perform a dreadful flop called Nothing On. This play-within-a-play is a comedic triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and flying fish. Written by award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn (Copenhagen, Democracy), this comedy of errors remains a crowd pleaser more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. It was also turned into a film in 1992 starring Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeve and John Ritter. Learn More

Taking Sides, by Ronald Harwood, is a powerful examination of the denazification trial of Wilhelm Furtwangler, conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. While no nonsense U.S. Army Major Steve Arnold investigates, Furtwangler fights for his freedom as Arnold dragnets his search for a high profile celebrity guilty of supporting Hitler.
