The Old Vic and West-End smash hit Noises Off comes to His Majesty's Theatre following its triumphant and critically acclaimed sell out run in London.
Hailed as one of the greatest British comedies ever written, Michael Frayn’s multi award-winning backstage farce serves up a riotous double bill - a play within a play. Hurtling along at breakneck speed it follows the backstage antics of a touring theatre company as they stumble their way through rehearsals in Weston-super-Mare, to a shambolic Wednesday matinee in Ashton-under-Lyne, and a final disastrous performance in Stockton-on-Tees.
Cast includes Neil Pearson (TV and Film credits include Monroe, Between the Lines, Drop the Dead Donkey, and Bridget Jones’ Diary), Maureen Beattie (TV credits include Lewis, The Bill, Taggart, Casualty); David Bark-Jones, Simon Bubb, Danielle Flett, Geoffrey Freshwater, Chris Larkin, Thomasin Rand and Sasha Waddell.

My friend and I saw this show in London last year and found it absolutely hilarious. We had not laughed so much in years! Hilariously funny and technically slick!
