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

This powerfully explosive play takes us under the veil as one actress performs nine stunning portraits drawn over a cross section of Iraqi women from ages 13 to 70.
9 Parts of Desire delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in the age-old war zone that is Iraq, providing us with an unusually timely meditation on the ancient, the modern and the feminine in a country overshadowed by war.
