Noises Off

Poster for Noises Off .

“I haven’t come to the theatre to hear about other people’s problems.  I’ve come to be taken out of myself, and preferably, not put back again.”

Noises Off began when the Michael Frayn stood backstage to watch a performance of a farce he had written and decided that what he saw backstage was funnier than what was happening onstage.  The result is Noises Off which shows the disintegration of a third rate theatre company from behind the scenes.  Frank Rich, theatre critic for The New York Times, called the script “The funniest play written in my lifetime.”
