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

Above the Fold: In a follow-up to last year’s sold-out production of Moment in the Sun from Inkwell Productions, veteran sportswriters Lefty and Manny have their friendship tested when their papers merge and they’re forced to compete for the one remaining job

About the Ticket Supplier: Inkwell TheaterThe Inkwell theater company is dedicated to producing new works that value the writer; a company where young artists and veterans alike can work in an environment of experimentation, support, and collaboration.
In the spring 2004, the company presented Only the Dead Know Burbank by Peter Lefcourt, followed by The Architect of Destiny by 25-year old Michael Gianakos; and Tango 'Til They're Sore, written and directed by 25-year-old Matthew Hancock. The company's fourth play, Sunset Park, by Marley Sims and Elliot Shoenman, ran for fourteen weeks and was published by Samuel French. Then came Michael Halperin's All Steps Necessary, which was based on a meeting called by Hermann Goering three days after the Kristallnacht pogrom. In 2007, Inkwell produced Moment in the Sun and in 2008 Old Glories. 2011 brought the Ovation-nominated production AfterMath, starring Annie Potts.
