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

My Uncle Arly

West Coast Premiere
One of Britain’s favorite writers, Edward Lear has delighted generations of children and adults alike with his deliciously silly and brilliant nonsense verse. Now, Hoipolloi invites audiences on a journey into Lear’s weird and wonderfully witty imagination as he embarks on an adventure towards the great Gromboolian plain. Inspired by his life, poems and illustrations, My Uncle Arly is an inventive and engaging production full of music, song and clowning that delves deep into Lear’s Victorian sense of humor. Filled with some of his best-loved characters, the show creates a stupendously mad and gloriously giggly world where easels become birds, hats fly and where we meet the pobble who has no toes and the dong with the luminous nose.
