The "Noises Off" actors shout a lot, making the words impossible to understand. I took my hearing aids out in order to muffle the volume. Bring ear protection if you are sensitive to loud noises.

Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.
