Noises Off in London

Starring:

Felicity Kendal

This brilliant Theatre Royal Bath Production of Michael Frayn’s classic comedy play has made its way around key UK venues and delighted critics and audiences every step of the way. Now it’s due in the West End for a well-deserved transfer. The fun kicks off at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on 27th September 2023 and it’s currently booking through to 16th December 2023.

It’s one of the nation’s best-loved comedy plays and this latest iteration celebrates its 40th birthday. A multi-award-winning farce dating back to 1982, it remains just as funny four decades down the line. The production stars the multi-award winning actor Felicity Kendal as Dotty Otley and the laughs are beautifully directed by Lindsay Posner, whose recent Bath productions include God of Carnage, Stones in his Pockets, and She Stoops To Conquer. Also starring are Jonathan Coy as Frederick Fellows and Alexander Hanson as Lloyd Dallas. The remaining casting is yet to be announced.

Are you up for a giggle? NOISES OFF has been delighting audiences ever since its 1980s premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith, coming your way with excellent credentials. Prepare yourself for a feel-good show full of timeless fun. The production transferred to the Phoenix Theatre in January 2023 and enjoyed rave reviews for its last West End run. Billed as one of the best comedies by Michael Frayn, it deserves its excellent reputation.

What's the plot of Noises Off?

This is a very British comedy. Noises Off tells the story of an ill-fated touring theatre company as they try their best to produce a play called Nothing On. The final rehearsals are a total shambles. The opening night is a nightmare. The matinee, in Ashton-Under-Lyme, goes horribly wrong, and the final performance, in Stockton-On-Tees, is utterly catastrophic. No wonder audiences cry with laughter.

This play has inspired all manner of comedy classics including the firm West End favourite, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, which also reveals what happens when a theatre group struggles to put on a show.

Who is NOISES OFF for?

Noises Off is recommended for people aged 12 and more.

Farce at its best

Although the play is now a little dated it’s still highly entertaining. The performances were so slick and professional that it was impossible not to laugh and also wonder at how they were able to perform it with such apparent ease. Farce requires a great deal of skill and timing is paramount and all the actors clearly had both… excellent!

Couldn’t have asked for a better night

I saw this over 40 years ago, on its London debut and left the theatre with mascara down my face because I was crying with laughter. This time was just as good, although it’s obviously evolved a bit. The players were all magnificent, with exquisite timing and delivery. We flew in from France just for one night so that we could see it before it closes. My husband had never seen it and it was as much a delight to me watching his hilarity as it was having the chance to see it myself once more. Thank you all so much.

Noisefully Wonderful

This current incarnation of Michael Frayn's classic farce within a farce feels as fresh as ever thanks to an amazing cast and very deft direction. Inherently, the second act is always hard to top in any production, the hilarity and brilliance keeps the audience howling all the way to the very last second. Talk about wanting an encore!

Hilarious farce

Noises off was a hilarious fast moving farce.All the cast worked so hard and Felicity Kendall was amazing at 77 coping with numerous lines( mainly about sardines!!) and lots of entrance and exits, as did all the cast. It was a real “laugh out loud” show which is so much needed .

Wait for the second act

At the time of the intermission I was regretting choosing this show. However, it turns out that the first act serves to set up the jokes for the second and third acts. I would recommend sticking it out to the second act. It becomes hilarious.

Technical problem

All was looking good and I was interested to know why the guy next to me said that this was the original play that goes wrong. Ironic as after approx 20 mins a stage director appeared and told cast to clear the stage. I thought it was part of the play. After approx 30 mins show was cancelled. Felt for all staff. I will return.

Autumn has arrived, even if records of 29 degrees across the UK in recent weeks has made it feel like Summer has hung around for a little longer recently. Now the nights are drawing in slightly earlier, instead of heading straight home for an evening on the sofa - why not spend your time with a trip to one of London’s theatres.

Review: NOISES OFF at The Haymarket Theatre Royal

by Stuart King | Friday, October 6 2023, 09:22

Taking its title from the stage direction appearing in scripts to indicate sounds coming from off-stage, NOISES OFF is widely considered Michael Frayn’s masterpiece of farce which was conceived as long ago as 1970 as he watched Lynn Redgrave perform in a (not especially funny) play, which the author realised was far funnier when observed from backstage.
