Michael Frayn’s award-winning Noises Off premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith in 1982 and instantly became an iconic British comedy.
With technical brilliance and split-second timing, it takes us behind the scenes with a company of actors in a hilarious and heartfelt tribute to the unpredictability of life in the theatre.
Hailed as one of the funniest plays of all time, Noises Off makes its triumphant return to the Lyric almost 40 years on, in a bold new production by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall/This House) for fans to enjoy and new audiences to discover.

I expected this to be amusing, but it went far beyond that. I was practically weeping with laughter. Full marks to the excellent cast for a superb performance. I really don’t know how on earth they did it.

Cancel all your plans and beg, steal or buy a ticket to see Noises Off. It is quite frankly one of the funniest shows of all time, and this particular production is comedy/farce at its finest. The cast are first rate.
