By Michael Frayn
Directed by Lindsay Posner
Presented by Theatre Royal Bath Productions

One of the greatest British comedies ever written visits Salford, direct from a triumphant West End season.

Michael Frayn’s celebrated play serves up a riotous double bill, a play within a play. Hurtling along at breakneck speed, Noises Off follows the on and offstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through the fictional farce, Nothing On. From the shambolic final rehearsals before opening night in Weston-super-Mare, to a disastrous matinee in Ashton-under-Lyne seen entirely, and hilariously silently, from backstage, before we share their final, brilliantly catastrophic performance in Stockton-on-Tees.

★★★★★ ‘One of the most joyous farces ever written…reduced me to laughter so helpless I could barely see the stage for crying’ Whatsonstage

★★★★ ‘Pure comic bliss. Dazzingly brilliant…has lost none of its power to reduce well-behaved adults to hysterical wrecks’ Daily Mail

★★★★ ‘Blissfully and brilliantly funny…guaranteed to leave an audience breathless with laughter’ Evening Standard

★★★★ ‘Glorious… one of the funniest plays in the canon’ The Times
