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.

A low-budget production of Acts 1 & 4 of the play, but has moments of real insight and feeling. A great bargain.

See or read the original before adventuring into any "modern" adaptations of this play. The acting was weak and the flow of Acts was frustrating (some were on video and some were acted out live). Video quality was extremely poor.
Acts were oddly...continued
