There are just five weeks left to see Michael Frayn’s comedy Noises Off in Jeremy Herrin’s hit production at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End. The run will end on 4 January 2020.
After watching from the wings a production of his 1970 farce The Two of Us with Richard Briers and Lynn Redgrave, also at the Garrick Theatre, and noting that the goings on behind the scenes were funnier than out front, Michael Frayn wrote Noises Off. With technical brilliance and split-second timing, Noises Off takes us behind the scenes with a company of actors touring their tatty production of Nothing On, in a hilarious and heartfelt tribute to the unpredictability of life in the theatre.
Hailed as one of the funniest plays of all time, this rip-roaring production, directed by Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons, This House, Wolf Hall), recently played a critically-acclaimed engagement at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre. Playing for a strictly limited West End season, Noises Off is at the Garrick Theatre until 4 January 2020.
Noises Off is directed by Jeremy Herrin with design by Max Jones, lighting design by Tim Lutkin, sound design by Ella Wahlström, movement by Joyce Henderson, fight direction by Rachel Bown-Williams and Ruth Cooper-Brown of Rc-Annie Ltd, casting by Wendy Spon CDG and Sam Stevenson CDG and associate direction by Daniel Raggett.
