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

Steve Martin's update of an early 20th century Greman play was billed as a farce but missed that mark. How do I know? Well, the set had three doors and I don't recall any multiple slamming of said doors. I also don't recall any double takes or other staples of full blown farce. Finally, there was no absurd humiliations visited on the less likable characters. So instead we had a moderately amusing period comedy, well performed (but not over the top, unfortunately) by the actors, with intermittently funny bits. I was a little disappointed.
Adapted by Steve Martin from Die Hose by Carl Sternheim, directed by William Wilday and produced by Anya Ivanova, Tom Laskey and Brain Raine.
