Noises Off Coming To The Nenagh Arts Centre

Michael Frayn’s Noises Off , considered to be one of the greatest farces ever written, takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure.

This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run.

Frayn gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from fluffed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and — of course — flying sardines!

Nenagh Players Present Noises Off – Wednesday 15th November – Sunday 19th November, 8pm, Tickets: €13/€10 (plus €1 Booking Fee)
