Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. "The play opens with a touring company dress-rehearsing Nothing On, a conventional farce. Mixing mockery and homage, Frayn heaps into this play-within-a-play a hilarious melee of stock characters and situations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Written by a man with a vision... Recommended."-"Library Journal

""The funniest play written in my lifetime"-Frank Rich, "The New York Times

""Frayn's construct is based on the principle that if farce involves watching the wheels come off a well-oiled machine, then nothing could be funnier than seeing the wheels fall off a farce itself. Pure comedy gold."-"The Guardian""" "Noises Off"
"Winner of the Evening Standard, the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the New York Drama Desk Award."
